Project Overview

As construction manager-at risk, Berglund oversaw successful projects at four different schools for the Riverside School District, which all hit their scheduled completion milestones.

Ames Elementary School two-story addition/ renovation provided two new large classrooms, a wing for early learners with three classrooms for pre-kindergarten, a new library, a multipurpose room that accommodates lunch, two learning hubs, a sensory room, a speech pathologist office, and an English language learning classroom.

Blythe Elementary School, our scope of work required constructing a 450 sqft addition and renovating 2400 sqft of the existing school space and site.

Central Elementary School, we built a 1,035 sqft addition and renovated 9,405 sqft of existing school space and site. This work included building a secure entrance vestibule and a wheelchair accessible ramp to the lower level entrance. The renovations included turning district offices into a multipurpose room that will be used for lunch. We also added an elevator to an enclosed courtyard at the school. For this, we used a mobile tower crane to bring the needed material and equipment in.

Hollywood Elementary School, we constructed a 1,400 sqft addition and renovated 1,300 sqft of existing school space and site. The project added a new multipurpose room with a glass wall to the back of the school, which can be used for lunch, music classes, and indoor recess.
