As a result of increasing enrollment and aging facilities at Dan O. Root II Health & Wellness Academy, the site had the need for expanded food prep facilities, Administration renovations, and campus wide HVAC and fire alarm upgrades. Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District selected Landmark as their lease-leaseback partner for the extensive modernization project. After working closely with ArchNexus on budget, phasing, and constructability of the project, it was decided that the best way to execute the majority of the project was during the summer, when the campus was unoccupied.
Extensive advance planning and coordination was required, ahead of the first shovel onsite. With slightly early start on the expansion of the existing Multi-Purpose and kitchen buildings, the project team went into high gear. This challenging summer modernization required careful coordination and many resources, but with an expert project team and a responsive design team, we successfully delivered this modernization.
