Los Angeles, CA

The project was a ground up new middle school located on Mulholland Drive in West Los Angeles. The challenging location and topography resulted in nearly four years of entitlement coordination prior to construction. The project cost approximately 30 million dollars and was developed from the group up completed by WRES. The school opened in July 2009 on time and within 3% of budget.
