McCoppin School

San Francisco, California

A remodel of an existing 21,386 sq. ft. 400-student elementary school built in 1975, this project was divided into two phases and required review and approvals by the California Office of Regulatory Services (ORS). 

Phase one was required to be completed in under three months, during the district’s summer break. This phase included the addition and painting of interior walls, new flooring, and electrical outlets. 

Portions of Phase two were completed while the school was occupied and included an outdoor play structure, a disabled access ramp, restroom renovation, fire and life safety improvements, as well as lighting improvements, security fences and other miscellaneous repairs.
