Challenges

Raising the Roof

The huge 42,500 sf roof was jacked up 7 feet in three sections to allow for an additional floor to be built.

 

Ensuring Adequate Utilities

The gas, electricity, and water systems needed a complete overhaul to meet heavy daily usage. Since there had been no gas service previously, Regency Development had to coordinate installation of a new gas main with the utility company.

• Electricity was upgraded from 400 amps at 208 volts to 1600 amps at 480 Tight Timetable

• Work at the site began in April 2009.

• The school campus was completed in time for opening day in September, just four months later.
