A Site Analysis report shall be developed for every site which shall be generated from a combination of existing CVUSD data and on-site data collection/verification. The Master Planning Architect will produce the site analysis under the direction of CVUSD Planning staff to include:
- Project Scope Summary
- Analysis utilizing CVUSD provided data and templates
- Site analysis report. This report is more free-form than the Cluster Survey
The purpose of the Site Analysis is to facilitate the formulation of the District's short term and long term goals. Utilize information and findings of the site Survey – and site visit(s) – to understand the overall dimensions and physical characteristics of the campus. The site analysis should include, but not be limited to the following:
- A narrative stating the purpose and goals of the Site Analysis of the Campus. This is a non-technical introduction that should provide a quick overview of the document on which it is based.
- A location or vicinity map may be used for providing contextual information about the surrounding area and/or neighborhood.
Existing Condition Analysis:
Graphic and written information illustrating existing campus building inventory, roadway access, parking lots, existing property boundary and other key site components. Provide any preliminary sketches that led to the Site Analysis. (This will help illustrate the decision process and alternative concept development in the next phase).
Illustrate, test for future programmatic requirements for accommodating land and building use – articulate goals, themes and issues that should be addressed in the development of a campus master plan. Assess projected change in student enrollment and the impact of that change on campus facilities in existing and proposed academic areas / zones. Under four main topics below, discuss your Site Analysis to include but not limited to:
General (Graphic and Written)
- DSA and other Jurisdictional Agency Certifications
- Curb Appeal
- Specialized Programs /STEM/STEAM
Circulation Patterns (Graphic and Written)
- Vehicular Circulation – Service, Parking and Drop-off
- Pedestrian Circulation
Activity Zones (Graphic and Written)
- Academic Building / Space Utilization
- Core Facilities
- Under Utilized Areas
- Athletics / Physical Education
Conflict / Deficiencies & Constraints (Graphic and Written)
- Physical Condition of Buildings
- Building and Site Deficiencies
- Space Utilization
- Core Facilities
- Topography/Site Features
Architect will prepare a draft of Site Analysis (ITEM 2) for a community presentation with-in approximately 7 calendar days after the completion of the ITEM 2. Location will typically be in a High School or a Middle School Multipurpose Room or Library. Charrette will typically last 2-3 hours and will be held after-school hours. Several Charrette’s may be required to review all sites assigned per step. Presentations will be projected, displayed on a monitor or hardcopy.
