Jordan High School Redevelopment Project CommencesContributor: Swinerton Blogger | August 29, 2016 | Image Gallery »
After nearly three years of construction, Swinerton Builders has completed work on the Jordan High School Redevelopment project! This significant project is one in a long line of projects for the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD).
The nearly 100-year-old Jordan campus was in desperate need of improvement. Thanks to an influx of bond money, Swinerton was able to partner with LAUSD to renovate nearly every building on campus. When all the dust cleared, only three original buildings remained because of their historic value. To ensure that Swinerton worked in conjunction with the District’s goals and minimized impact to students and staff, the project was broken up into four distinct phases.
Phase 1 involved the renovation of two existing buildings, which consisted of converting a former wood shop building into a girl’s locker room and transforming a gym into a food service kitchen area, student store, and three classrooms. Phase 2 included the ground-up construction of two new three-story buildings, while Phase 3 involved renovations to the historic administration and multi-purpose buildings, along with construction of new lunch areas with shelters. Construction rounded off with Phase 4, which involved various site improvements and accessibility upgrades.
Together with the help of our valued project partners, Swinerton was able to deliver a bright new learning environment to Jordan High School where students can continue to thrive for years to come.
