Since 2006, Beaverton School District's enrollment has increased by over 2,600 students, currently exceeding more 39,000 students. This increase has led to overcrowding in four of the District's high schools with the schools being over 100% capacity. Elementary schools are also seeing a rise in enrollment. To address this issue, the School District proposed a $680 million Capital Bond Measure that was approved by voters in May 2014. The Bond addressed repairs, provide new capacity and relieve overcrowding. Buildings will be modernized and renovated, outdated learning technologies will be replaced and issues with safety in the facilities will be improved.
Heery has been awarded a professional services agreement to provide commissioning services for a new high school in the South Cooper Mountain area. The 320,000 SF high school is being constructed on 47 acres at the Northwest corner of Southwest 175th and Scholls Ferry Road. When complete, it will serve up to 2,200 students in grades 9-12.
As a result of winning this public, competitively bid project, Beaverton School District awarded Heery four additional refurbishment projects in existing schools, including: Sunset High School, the Capital Center, Conestoga Middle School, and Cedar Park and Meadow Park Middle School. This is great testament to the professionalism and client advocacy delivered by Heery's commissioning team.
Additional projects in the 2014 Bond Program include:
