Interim Housing at Canalino, CMS and CHS
Completed Summer 2017
During Summer 2017, interim housing projects were completed at Canalino, CMS and CHS. With interim housing in place for student and staff use, existing portables were demolished, and staging and site work was completed for future modernization projects as well as the construction of the new, Gen7 modular classrooms that will begin in Summer 2018. The interim housing projects provide the learning spaces necessary to keep the campuses fully operational during the implementation of Measure U.
These extremely important “anchor” projects set the stage for the remaining Measure U projects at those three campuses. The completion of these projects is an important milestone for Measure U. Carpinteria-based Shaw Contracting was selected as the contractor for all three interim housing projects with the total spent just under $640,000. The interim house projects came in under budget and were completed ahead of schedule, allowing teachers to move in a few days early to prepare for the 2017-18 school year.
