SANTA ANA, Calif., July 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SVA Architects is delighted to be working with The Hermosa Beach City School District for its modernization and construction projects, funded by local bond Measure S.  The $59 million provided by voter-approved Measure S will address the district's overcrowded and outdated schools by building a new school on the site of North School, and provide renovations and upgrades at Hermosa Valley School and Hermosa View School.  SVA Architects was selected for the project due to its exceptional resume in K-12 education facilities and its community-focused approach of seeking input from residents and stakeholders.

The projects include the rebuilding of North School, which had originally served as an elementary school but closed and had been rented to outside preschool groups since the 1980s. North School is anticipated to reopen in 2019. At Hermosa View School, two new classroom buildings are planned to replace existing deteriorated, relocatable, classroom buildings, as well as campus-wide upgrades to electrical, lighting and HVAC systems; new roofing; and accessibility upgrades. Hermosa Valley School will be modernized to improve parking and safety, replace aging roofs, and upgrade lighting and HVAC systems. 

Robert Simons, AIA, President of SVA Architects, states, "The modernization and new construction at the Hermosa Beach City Schools will reduce overcrowding, allow for more optimal learning environments, and ensure the facilities are environmentally compatible with the vision of the community.  We are excited to be a part of a much-needed transformation in this district, which will enhance the education of so many young people."
