Prefabricated Classroom Building
The District has partnered with Blach to construct $30M of work, including a new 44,000 sq.ft. two-story classroom building at Central Middle School and the remodel of the existing Central Middle School into a grades 4-5 bridge school.
In addition to utilizing Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools, Blach is utilizing a state-of-the-art, panelized structural system to build the classroom building, in which 10 x 30 foot steel panels are custom-made and prefabricated under shop conditions and transported to the site. This system, which was developed jointly by Blach Construction and Quattrocchi Kwok Architects, will improve efficiency of installation resulting in savings both in terms of time and cost.
The new school will feature flexible learning spaces and learning commons in a 21st Century learning environment and is scheduled for completion in August 2015.
