LA HABRA CITY SCHOOL DISTRICT SIERRA VISTA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
This campus wide modernization and addition project was completed in four phases of modernization and new construction. The classroom addition reflects input from the collaborative community workshops. The complex includes 10 classrooms, a speech/counseling room, a teacher’s lounge/workroom, and restrooms for students and staff. The project also increased ADA accessibility. The center of campus has been redefined with an outdoor courtyard and an expanded lunch area. Sustainable design elements include: natural ventilation through operable windows; natural lighting; and low VOC materials. Other work included a new telecommunications infrastructure, new interior finishes, new casework, automatic fire alarm and HVAC upgrades.
This project was completed by James Fortunes AIA while at DDA.
