Gafcon was selected in 2013 to provide project and construction management staff augmentation services under Proposition S and Z Bond Programs for San Diego County’s largest school district. Since then, we have supported a variety of projects including the development of the District’s program management information system.
Gafcon also collaborated with District consultants to develop a sustainability implementation study report which reviewed the District’s 13 “Dream Big Ideas” and the implementation costs resulting in the District’s approval to proceed. The team assisted with writing several chapters of the Council for Greater City Schools report, “Reversing the Cycle of Deterioration in the Nation’s Public School Buildings.”
As the climate continues to change, the District decided to implement heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) improvements for 2,000 of the District’s hottest classrooms in order to improve the educational environment. Gafcon developed the plan to accelerate the installation of air-conditioning, expediting architectural/engineering assessments, providing planning and design development, and installing units during off hours.
Additional services include communications and outreach, project controls, estimating, engineering, security assessments, master planning, construction management, oversight of the District’s i21 Interactive Classroom Initiative, and development of the District’s web-based contractor prequalification application software.
