  • PROJECT DESCRIPTION

  • PROJECT INFORMATION

Wasco Union Elementary School District’s modernization of Palm Avenue Elementary School was generated by the need to convert the existing elementary school into a junior high school in an effort to reduce student overcrowding and renovate the aging school originally built in 1978.

The Palm Avenue modernization involved preconstruction and construction services of a new 15,709 sf gymnasium including concessions, lobby, restrooms, student dressing rooms, coaches offices, storage and locker rooms. The existing 2,100 sf administration office / library building was restructured to incorporate a new 800 sf lobby expansion and the existing library was relocated within two newly upgraded classrooms.

Exterior finishes incorporate concrete masonry, an acrylic plaster system, aluminum storefronts and new roofing system. Site improvements include new parking lot, new quad play area, walk way canopy and concrete paving.

Landscape upgrades include artificial turf around gymnasium, classrooms and administration. New playfield sod, curbing, irrigation systems and trees/shrubs were incorporated throughout this 13.8 acre campus site.
