Woodland Hills Academy
Woodland Hills School District hired Reynolds to provide construction management in support of renovations to the 118,000-square-foot Woodland Hills Academy for K-7 students.
Built in 1919, this historical building fell into poor condition over the years and required extensive upgrades. There were code and accessibility concerns, some structural damage, inefficient windows and lighting, as well as outdated classrooms and administrative offices.
The project included the following:
- Conversion of an old swimming pool into auxiliary gym
- Demolition/reconstruction of the front entrance stairs
- Interior upgrades: new acoustical tiles, VCT floors, and new laminate casework
- Code improvements to interior railings, exterior corridor walls, sprinkler system, fire alarm, security, phone, tele-data, and intercom systems
- Handicap accessibility in classrooms and bathrooms, and ADA compliant auditorium seats
- High-efficiency lighting and controls, and lighting system replacement in theater
- New air handler units for gym, cafeteria, auditorium, and library
- Installation of new four-stop hydraulic elevator
- Building commissioning of mechanical equipment and automation system
Deferred Maintenance Projects
Woodland Hills School District contracted with Reynolds to provide a roadmap for the district for accomplishing a significant backlog of deferred maintenance projects at eight district facilities.
Reynolds started by providing a comprehensive building condition assessment, which included a detailed analysis of all major building systems and equipment. Additionally, Reynolds provided an analysis of the district’s energy consumption and a benchmarking study.
In conjunction with the District’s architect of record, JC Pierce, llc, and district administration Reynolds developed a comprehensive list of 70 asset protection projects needed to keep the district buildings in good working order.
Woodland Hills Jr/Sr High School
Reynolds is providing construction management services for an addition/renovation to the junior/senior high school, which includes MEP upgrades, architectural improvements, renovation of the performing arts center, and cafeteria and classroom additions.
Reynolds provided construction oversight for renovations to the Wolvarena, which had been experiencing repeated flooding. The project involved installing site drainage improvements and new turf.
Dickson Intermediate School
The Woodland Hills School District hired Reynolds to evaluate the condition of the district’s current intermediate school program and provide options to address the needs identified. Reynolds and JC Pierce together identified three options for consideration. The district elected to proceed with the option that utilized the former Dickson Primary School and converted it to a new intermediate school.
The renovations of the existing facility include converting the gymnasium into a new cafeteria, renovating the old cafeteria into a media center and studio, new architectural finishes throughout, and new mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems.
The new 3-story addition includes: a new production kitchen (to serve three district buildings) and serving line, multi-purpose room and stage, music suite, STEM classrooms and general use classrooms.
