King Chavez Middle School is pleased to announce their new building is now complete. Finished on time and under budget, the 18,497 square foot charter school will house 6th through 8th graders with up to 375 students. It is located in the Southeastern San Diego Community Plan area at 500 30th street. The design work was done by Randal Ehm of Ehm Architecture and is being constructed by Dave Adams of Aerial Construction. The project consists of two stories over a basement and will help beautify the neighborhood. This project was welcomed by the local community planning committee for its innovative design and construction on such a tough site to develop.
We were involved early on in the design phase and assisted on the value engineering. The project called for removal of 7500 cubic yards of dirt and the installation of over $500,000 worth of retaining walls. King Chavez Middle School is the first Charter School in San Diego that was designed and built as a charter school. This project was fast tracked and we successfully finished this project on time and on budget in eight months.
