California’s K-12 schools have gone through difficult times over the years. Budget constraints, aging facilities, and enrollment fluctuations have placed uneasy stress on facilities and personnel assigned to ensure a safe school environment for California students. Challenges mitigated by partnering with an experienced engineering firm. BSK has worked with over 100 K-12 districts throughout California over our 46 year history. We have provided environmental consulting, and geotechnical engineering as well materials testing & inspection. Our clients have come to trust BSK to provide solutions which meet their schedule and budget while exceeding client expectations
BSK performed a multi-phased geotechnical investigation and geologic hazards investigation for the elementary, intermediate and high school complexes. Geotechnical investigations were also performed for off-site improvements including field explorations and evaluations for storm and sewer lines and street reconstruction. During construction BSK performed on-site inspection for the intermediate school complex and high school athletic fields. Services included; earthwork testing and special inspection for concrete, masonry and welding. For the off-site improvements, BSK coordinated excavation and backfill of sewer trenches by supplying a field engineer.
It was decided in 2009 that La Vina Middle School needed a new science building on their campus. The new building consists of a single-story structure. BSK provided the original geotechnical investigation and the updated addendum on this $29M school. BSK also provided the materials testing and observations as well as grading observation, and compaction testing.
BSK provided the initial geotechnical investigation for the construction a $4M full aquatics center at the Turlock High School campus. At the time of our field exploration, the project site was a fully functional swimming pool with associated amenities. BSK was retained for the construction of the newly remodeled state-of-the-art swim complex which now includes a 50-meter and a 25-meter pool. This contract also included a new elementary school in which BSK performed geotechnical engineering, materials testing and special inspections.
