Role

Construction Manager

ICI has partnered with Burbank School District 111 as the District’s construction manager since 2016. During that time ICI completed an award-winning new school, Luther Burbank Elementary, as well as life safety upgrades throughout multiple district buildings. Currently, ICI is underway on the construction of a significant expansion and renovation to Liberty Junior High School.

Construction commenced in the spring of 2019 and the project is targeted for completion in the summer of 2020. Renovations to the existing school took place primarily during the 2019 summer break and the addition is being constructed during the 2019-2020 school year.
The project consists of re-purposing and renovating several areas within the existing school to create future-ready learning environments and to improve space usage.

Areas remodeled include the reception area, nurses room, administration area and the provision of a new FACS lab. The existing library will be converted into a new gymnasium. Five existing classrooms will be converted into learning-based collaboration spaces.

The construction program also calls for the creation of collaboration labs, a makers space and additional storage. Upon completion of the re-purposing and renovation, the school will receive a bold, fresh paint concept throughout the corridors to enhance the interior environment.

The main entrance to the school is being relocated to the expansion and will house a secure vestibule. The two-story expansion will also contain 8 science labs, additional classrooms, a library, an art room, special education classrooms, a two-story multipurpose space (shown above) and a collaboration lab.

The school will also undergo significant site improvements including relocated and expanded parking, new walkways and landscaping.
