Vanir Celebrates Ribbon-Cutting at New San Juan High School

New San Juan High School held its ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, October 8, 2010 to celebrate the completion of the school’s new career technical facilities.  The school, located in Sacramento County’s Citrus Heights, California, sits on 36.5 acres and can accommodate up to 2,000 students.  The new facilities will allow students hands-on experience with one of five chosen career paths, including hospitality management, construction technology, engineering, transportation technology, and media production. 

Vanir provided construction management services for construction of Phase I of the program, a CM at-risk project, resulting in 28,126 square feet of new and remodeled classrooms and lab space for a construction project cost of $21 million.  This included the 10,512-square-foot culinary arts building, complete with a demonstration kitchen, full commercial café, industrial kitchen, bakery and classroom space; as well as the 17,614-square-foot technology buildings with classrooms and labs for construction, transportation and engineering.  The district chose Vanir due to the trust built over the last 16 years Vanir has worked with the district on numerous other projects. 

San Juan High School was established in 1913 and is the second oldest high school in Sacramento County.  Recently the school officially changed its name to “New San Juan High School” in a move to reflect the changes on campus, including the rebuilding of outdated structures and the new direction of the educational curriculum.  Phase II of the program is scheduled to start in late fall of 2010 and consists of a new administration building at approximately 5,429 square feet and the remodel of the existing 9,422-square-foot media building.
