Welcome to BUILD- Conejo Valley Unified School District

Background
On November 4, 2014, the voters of the Conejo Valley overwhelmingly approved Measure I, a $197 million general obligation bond to support school renovation and modernization projects in Conejo Valley Unified School District. The District currently operates 31 sites with total buildings in excess of 2 million square feet. The average school site in CVUSD is over forty years old. District schools need additional renovation and modernization, improvements in safety, and significant investments in technology infrastructure and support in order to provide students with an education that will prepare them for success in the new century.

Overall Process

The CVUSD master planning effort will require consulting architecture/master planning support for 6 key efforts utilizing series of templates and community meetings.

A survey/report shall be developed for every site which will be generated from a combination of existing CVUSD data and on-site data collection/verification. The Master Planning Architect will produce these surveys under the direction of CVUSD Planning staff to include:

  • Description
  • Project Scope Summary
  • Survey utilizing CVUSD provided data and templates
  • Includes review of documents supplied by the District, visits, documentation of the site and production of a validated survey of the existing conditions

At a minimum, the survey scope shall include but not be limited to the following:

  • Validating CVUSD Plot Plans and documenting any changes in the location or orientation of buildings
  • Validating the CVUSD SP3-A information referring to interior building use and documenting any deviations in space and use
  • Validation of other CVUSD data as provided
  • Photographic documentation of the site
  • EMG Survey Report

Charrette #1:
Architect will prepare a draft of the Survey (ITEM 1) for a site-based presentation within approximately 7 calendar days after the completion of the ITEM 1.

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:

  • Description
  • 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)

  • Fire/Life/Safety
  • Accessibility
  • DSA and other Jurisdictional Agency Certifications
  • Curb Appeal
  • Specialized Programs /STEM/STEAM
  • Technology

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
  • Arts
  • Sciences
  • Other

Conflict / Deficiencies & Constraints (Graphic and Written)

  • Physical Condition of Buildings
  • Building and Site Deficiencies
  • Space Utilization
  • Core Facilities
  • Topography/Site Features

Charrette #2:
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.

Develop Alternatives for every site which will be generated from a combination of existing CVUSD data and on-site data collection/verification and site analysis.

  • Project Scope Summary: Develop a minimum of 2-3 concepts to be considered for long-term and short-term plans. Develop potential projects with-in the master plan solution.

The purpose of the alternative concepts is to facilitate the formulation of the District's short term and long term goals and engage the school, stakeholders and community in the decision making process for each site. Utilize information and findings of the site Survey, Site Analysis, site visit(s), and other pertinent information – to understand the overall dimensions and physical characteristics of the campus and possible solutions.

Charrette #3:
Architect will prepare a draft of Alternative Concepts (ITEM 3) for a community presentation with-in approximately 7 calendar days after the completion of the ITEM 3. 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 maybe required to review all sites assigned per step. Presentations will be projected, displayed on a monitor or hardcopy.

Develop the Conceptual Master Plan based on the presentation and feedback from the Alternative concepts. The Conceptual Master Plan maybe a hybrid of several alternatives. In this phase of the process, the solution is to be narrowed down to one plan for every site:

Project Scope Summary:
Develop a single concept to be considered for long-term and short-term plans. Develop potential projects with-in the master plan solution.

Charrette #4:
Architect will prepare a draft of Conceptual Master Plan (ITEM 4) for a community presentation with-in approximately 7 calendar days after the completion of the ITEM #4. 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 maybe required to review all sites assigned per step. Presentations will be projected, displayed on a monitor or hardcopy.

Develop the Final Master Plan based on the presentation and feedback from the Conceptual Master Plan. In this phase of the process, the solution to be one finalized Master Plan for every site.

Project Scope Summary:
Finalize a single concept to be considered for long-term and short-term plans. Develop potential projects with-in the master plan solution.

Prepare and submit all Master Planning Items. Include final edits and fine-tuning of all documents.
