Period of Performance:

Supporting a campus population of 700 students, the new Multipurpose Building at Lakeview Elementary School in Lakeside, CA included a gymnasium/auditorium with a stage and seating for 580 people, administrative offices, teachers lounge, health office, and food-service kitchen with a sheltered lunch court for 350-400 students. As the first Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) building approved by Division of the State Architect (DSA) in Southern California, this bond-funded Lakeside Union School District project provides a new infill 10,000 square feet Multipurpose Building that serves as the new campus entry. Cost savings are realized from the high insulation values and lateral strength inherent in this innovative construction type. The insulation is the formwork for the concrete, which decreases construction waste. In addition to good thermal insulation, sound insulation is superb. As there is no wood used in the building structure, it is naturally resistant to termites and mold.

The site construction involved demolishing existing paving, building slab, foundations, and lunch shelter in order to proceed with improving the exterior of the established school.  New site construction included installing a CMU retaining wall, 2,700 square feet steel lunch shelter, and additional parking areas.                                                                          

O’Day Consultants provided construction surveying and staking services for this project, which was completed one month ahead of schedule in the Fall of 2011.
