The Fremont Union (Calif.) High School District has completed construction of a District Office and Adult School Building.
The new facility has 27,000 square feet of education, administrative and support spaces and replaces a building that needed extensive structural repairs.
"Not only does this multipurpose building double as a modern home for district operations and comprehensive Adult School, it serves as a central hub that facilitates access between our schools, community members and district administration,” says Fremont Union Superintendent Polly Bove.
The project places district administrative offices and the Adult School under one roof. It features new offices, professional/continuing education rooms and a new board room for public meetings. The portion of the building dedicated to the Adult School has administration space and flexible classrooms designed to support a range of course offerings, such as English as a Second Language, GED preparation and citizenship preparation.
In the main lobby of the building, a multimedia “District History” display uses physical and digital media to feature student work and the district’s nearly 100-year history.
The facility was designed to meet or exceed all requirements of the California Green Building and Energy Codes and features energy-efficient mechanical equipment, low-VOC materials, stormwater filtration and sustainable landscaping. Now fully open and home to all administrative operations, the District is excited to present this new resource to the FUHSD community.
The architect is Quattrocchi Kwok Architects, and the builder is Blach Construction.
