Cesar Chavez Public Charter School – Parkside — Campus Relocation Program Management

In 2004 one of the Cesar Chavez Public Charter Schools in Washington DC was going to expand and be relocated into two separate locations. This project needed an architectural program and preliminary test fit analysis to accommodate such a move. B&D was retained for this work, which also included management of a temporary location for use during the renovations. We fast-tracked the FF&E and coordinated the space utilization plan for the temporary space, while serving as owner’s representative through design and construction for the new spaces. As part of our services, we also managed zoning and public entitlements, and tracked and managed the quality, schedule, and cost of the project to ensure the facility would be ready for school use by September of 2005. The 79,600 SF, $15.1 million renovated space opened on time with 25 classrooms, two science rooms, two art studios, a library, a computer lab, a media center, and a multipurpose cafeteria/auditorium with a kitchen.
