Solana Beach plans for building seventh school site

The Solana Beach School District is moving forward with plans for its seventh school, to be located in Pacific Highlands Ranch.

“We embarked upon the project five years ago and then discontinued everything because of the devastating economic climate,” said SBSD Superintendent Leslie Fausset.

But the district’s school board agenda now regularly includes discussions of plans for the school, which the district wants to build for maximum energy efficiency.

“Things are beginning to pick up, so we have re-engaged the architect and are beginning the planning process,” Fausset said.

A contract on the consent calendar with GreenWorks Studio is expected to be approved at the May 20 school board meeting. The work, not to exceed $26,550 plus reimbursable expenses at a rate of 1.1 times the actual cost, is for advanced energy and daylight modeling services for School #7.

Based in Los Angeles, GreenWorks Studio is being asked to “provide advanced energy and daylight modeling to deliver information which reduces energy consumption while enhancing occupant comfort.”

The board packet states the firm will analyze weather data and climate patterns and will “identify appropriate passive design opportunities.” The contract runs from May 24, 2010, to June 30, 2015.

The school will be a kindergarten-through-sixth-grade configuration and will be built for approximately 640 students. There are currently 240 students in Pacific Highlands Ranch area, Fausset said.

There is no projected completion or opening date yet.
