LAUSD's first design-build project; Daytona Museum of Arts expansion; and more.
High school renovations will be LAUSD’s first design-build project
A design-build team led by Pinner Construction Co. of Anaheim, Calif., and the Pasadena, Calif., office of architecture firm gkkworks has received approval from California’s Division of the State Architect to proceed with the Los Angeles Unified School District’s Dorsey High School redevelopment project. The first design-build project in the LAUSD’s history, the renovations call for the demolition of existing buildings and the construction of a two-story, 28,000-sf classroom building and 22,000-sf gymnasium. All new components will be constructed to achieve LEED-NC Silver certification.
