On the Boards – Education

From concept design through construction administration, Nacht & Lewis is pleased to share details of exciting new projects we are working on. Take a look at what we've got on the boards with highlights of our latest projects in-progress.

San Juan Unified School District – Greer Elementary School

This Design-Build project provides over 30,000 s.f. of ground-up new facilities and the heavy modernization of over 24,000 s.f. to create an entirely new campus on an existing site. Greer Elementary School builds upon a modular design developed by Nacht & Lewis for all classrooms to help meet a strict construction schedule. the project provides 21st century collaborative learning environments for its K-5 students, including outdoor work space and interior break-out spaces. Rooms are flexible and roll-up garage doors connect many classrooms to adjacent outdoor learning spaces.

Dry Creek Joint Elementary School District – District Education Center

At over 16,000 square feet, the District Education Center (DEC) will house the District’s administration functions including the Offices of the Superintendent, Education Services, Human Resources and Fiscal Services. The building is the primary business center for the District but also serves as a community center and staff training facility. A large community room will be open for public use, serve as the public Board Chambers and will be used as a training center for District teachers and staff.

The project will be located on the District-owned property on the existing Creekview Ranch Middle School site and will be reflective of the area’s rural agricultural history. With the middle school designed with a barn-like vocabulary of steel and corrugated metal siding, the DEC will complement this industrial design with a more residential scale representative of a rural farmhouse.

The project is being delivered on an extremely tight budget and schedule. With just over $6 million in available funding, the building is being designed with efficiency and durability in mind. Repetitive structural framing and panelized construction lend to the building’s cost-effectiveness and speed of construction.

The facility is scheduled to open in Spring 2018.

Elk Grove Unified School District – James Rutter Middle School

The James Rutter Science Center consists of eight science labs and a large central collaboration space serving state-of-the art science facilities for 6th-8th grade students. To keep project costs down, a standardized design was established among all labs that utilizes flexible furniture and workstations in response to changing program and curriculum needs. Abundant daylighting is provided through large exterior storefront windows and the traditional abundance of casework gives way to tackable and marker wall surfaces for collaborative learning and the display of student work. The central collaboration space services the teacher’s primary work area and contains a fume hood, gas and other utilities for small group demonstrations, keeping these more dangerous utilities and materials out of the labs. The collaboration space is large enough not only for the eight science teachers, but is sized for large group and campus-wide teacher trainings.
