Mojave Unified School District - California City High School
  • Delivery Method: Lease-Leaseback
  • Awarded: November, 2006
  • Project Completed: August, 2007
Project Description:

The California City High School project consisted of the construction of a new 42,740 square foot High School facility on 35 acres site. The facility is comprised of seven buildings; 25 classrooms, a ceramic studio, welding shop, wood shop, science lab and administration/cafeteria building. All site preparation including underground utilities. Prior to Seward L. Schreder Construction Inc.’s involvement, this project had been delayed for 3.5 years. The modular company that was awarded the contract to produce the buildings for this project went bankrupt during these delays.

The team at SLSC assisted the district in securing additional funds from the Office of Public School Construction during the Plan Verification for Off-site, Service Site and Utilities, which amounted to over 2.1 million dollars in addition to the architect’s original estimate. Due to the delays and associated cost with the project, an aggressive schedule had to be established and significant value engineering had to be realized to get the project within budget. The modular buildings for this project sat for a period of 2.5 years exposed to harsh environment of the Mojave Desert. We were concerned about the potential for mold and had the buildings abated, removing all mold-containing materials, leaving just the steel structure and exterior sheathing intact. We then obtained mold certification clearances on the buildings. Construction began on November 27, 2006. This project was completed on-time and within budget, as a result of a strong team and implementation of the following strategies: weekly project meeting with detailed minutes including the tracking of all RFI’S and submittals with the use of Prolog Manager; creation of a detailed project schedule; utilization of sub-contractors with proven track record and resources to complete this challenging project; team approach working as one with the District, Architect, Inspector of record, testing laboratories, and all state agencies as a result of open and honest communication.

Mojave Unified School District - Hacienda Elementary School
  • Delivery Method: Lease-Leaseback
  • Awarded: December, 2006
  • Project Completed: August, 2007
Project Description:

The Hacienda Elementary School project consists of the construction of a new 28,480 square foot Elementary School facility on a 13 acre site for the Mojave Unified School District. The facility is comprised of 25 modular classrooms and a modular administration building. This project was originally designed with all permanent structures; however, the cost to construct this project as designed exceeded the District’s $25,000,000 budget. The District was to match the funds provided by the Office of Public School Construction that gave The District a total construction budget of $11,400,000. Through the use of modular construction and significant value engineering, Seward L. Schreder Construction Inc. was able to get the project within budget. One big hurdle was the replacement of the permanent structures using modular buildings, as we were required to resubmit the plans to the Division of State Architect for their approval. Construction began on January 22, 2007 with a revised site design and classroom layout, as developed by Seward L. Schreder Construction Inc. through our Value Engineering efforts. Considering final Division of State Architect approval for this project was not obtained until May 9, 2007, this project is truly a testament of our commitment to providing an on-time project with a Guaranteed Maximum Price.
