  • District reaches out to disabled-veteran-owned businesses

    Posted by Cynthia Reed-Porter at 11/5/2014 3:00:00 PM
    San Diego Unified School District's Facilities Planning & Construction Division is implementing a highly successful Business Outreach Program that strives to ensure that emerging, small and underutilized businesses have viable opportunities to participate in all Propositions S and Z construction projects. To ensure small, minority-, women- and disabled veteran-owned companies are aware of these contracting opportunities, the district has set specific goals. 
     
    One of the goals was to increase the level of participation Disabled-Veteran-Owned Business Enterprises (DVBEs) in bond-funded construction projects to to 4.5 percent in 2014. The district not only surpassed the state requirement of 3 percent, but it increased its participation to 12.52 percent in 2014, based on the amount of construction dollars awarded to DVBEs.
     
    Below are a few of the disabled-veteran business owners who have benefited from the Business Outreach Program and working on San Diego Unified construction projects. 
     
    Brian Alston Brian M. Alston, owner in My Electrician, Inc. in Temecula, is a former Marine who suffered service-related back injury. Before he started his own electrical company five years ago, he worked with Berg Electric of San Diego for approximately five years.

    His company began contracting with San Diego Unified through the micro-projects that are specifically designed by the district's Business Outreach Program to help small construction-related contractors do business with the school district.

    "San Diego Unified helped me get started with public works projects," Alston said. "They (the business outreach team) linked me up with general contractors and helped me with the process."

    "Being a DVBE with San Diego Unified helped me get my foot 'in the door' with other public works contractors as well," Alston continued. "It made me valuable as a subcontractor."

    Marquee installation at Ocean Beach ES  He started out with a San Diego Unified micro-project or approximately $1,000. Now, he has gets single jobs for as much $400,000, and he has had a couple of those at the same time. Alston says that 100 percent of his company's contracts are DVBE. He now does work with Caltrans, the City of Murrieta, the City of San Diego, California Fish & Wildlife and the California Highway Patrol. Currently, My Electrician, Inc., is installing several marquees at San Diego Unified schools including Ocean Beach and Dewey elementary schools.

    Alston now has four employees, one of which is also a former Marine. One of his former employees was a veteran as well. He said he believes in helping and mentoring other veterans.

    Asked what he has learned from trying to grow his own business, Alston said, "The most significant thing I learned is to ask questions because there are people out there that want to help. Ask a lot of questions, and use the support that is there."

    As to what has was the most challenging aspect to being a contractor public works projects, Alston said that it was the bonding. It's having enough cash on hand, having previous experience, and managing the cash flow.

    "It's all paid off though," he said.
     
    Pete Spencer Pete Spencer, owner of Audio Associates in San Diego, has been working with San Diego Unified for approximately 20 years. He's been a public works contractor for 35 years.
     
    Spencer was in the Coast Guard during the Vietnam War and sustained a head injury during his service.  He started Audio Associates within a year after he was discharged from the Coast Guard.
     
    "I started gradually with someone who was mentoring me along the way," Spencer said. "I was DVBE certified in 1990, and that certification has opened a lot of doors for me."
     
    "San Diego Unified has been wonderful," Spencer added. " Others don't require that 3 percent of their contracts (construction-related) be DVBE.    
     
    Audio Associates integrates technological systems and provides low-voltage electrical upgrades. Currently, the company has a revenue of $3-5 million and 20-25 employees (two of which are veterans). Spencer pointed out that there are a lot of opportunities in technology.
     
    "Technology doubles every 18 months," he said. "We need to get more people involved and train them in video technology."
     
    Audio Associates has worked on i21 Initiative, which provides interactive classrooms at each school; various stadium projects, television studios, and the new libraries that were constructed/funded by Prop. MM during 1998-20008. Currently, Audio Associates is working on the new Academy of Business Technology at Clairemont High School. 
     
    Besides being a business owner, Spencer is also involved in industry-related organizations. He is a member of the board of directors  of the National Electrical Contractors Association. He is also a member of the Joint Apprenticeship Council, which includes labor and management. Through these memberships and his involvement with the labor unions, Spencer actively supports training and apprenticeships. 
     
    "A lot of military service members participate in the apprenticeships, and a lot of our key people are former military," he said. "We actively seek military personnel."
     
    Spencer acknowledged that veterans often need help in other areas as they transition into private life. He said that there is counseling available through the unions and military organizations.  
      
    "What better way to say 'thank you' to someone who was willing to put their life on the line than to give them a job or help them grown their business," Spencer said. 
     
     
     
    Henry Sprague Henry Sprague, owner of Paving Net, an e-commerce construction materials purchasing system based in Long Beach, is providing solar panels to Soltek-Pacific for the new Salk Elementary School's solar carport project. Before starting Paving Net, Sprague was a paving contractor for nearly 30 years.

    In 2000, Sprague and Paving Net were certified as a DVBE in California. Sprague suffered Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after serving in the Navy during the Vietnam War.

    He has a passionate about the DVBE opportunities.

    "When I got out of the military, people had a negative feeling toward service men and women," he said. "That's changed now."
     
    Sprague focused his passion for helping disabled veterans get jobs into a concerted effort to get the State of California to set a requirement of 3 percent for DVBE participation in public works projects. According to Sprague, he recruited an old college friend to help him lobby the state legislature for the requirement.

    "Some state agencies had mandatory requirements as far back as the late '90s; but as of July 2009, Assembly Bill X4 21 ushered in
    the mandatory policy," Sprague said. "We helped write and pass the bill."
     
    San Diego Unified School District takes the DVBE participation requirement very seriously.     

    Solar panels arrrive at new Salk ES "Out of 330 California school districts, San Diego Unified has been the most supportive of the DVBE participation," Sprague noted. "I salute SDUSD, Soltek-Pacific and the state's DVBE participation requirement."  

    According to Sprague, government agencies support the growth of small businesses in California; but the most important aspect is often overlooked.
     
    "Small businesses need funding to pay their material vendors throughout the construction process," Sprague said. "This is what we are trying to do provide with www.pavingnet.com" 
     
    San Diego Unified's Business Outreach Program
    The team of Karen Linehan, outreach manager, and Alma Banuelos, business outreach coordinator, implement the district's Business Outreach Program for Facilities Planning & Construction.  The program includes:  
    • Maintaining a database of the small, minority-, women- and disabled veteran owned businesses expressing interest in contracting with the San Diego Unified.
    • Notifying small, minority-, women- and disabled veteran-owned businesses and organizations of construction bidding opportunities via fax, email, social networks and other media.
    • Promoting contracting opportunities at many public outreach events, including those hosted by the Public Agency Consortium (PAC).
    • Issuing the Business Outreach Newsletter each quarter to provide construction bond program updates, contracting information and upcoming bid opportunities.
    • Providing subcontractors with tools to network with general contractors, such as plan holder lists and pre-bid site walk attendance sheets.
    • Developing additional strategies based on stakeholder feedback on how to better serve emerging, small and underutilized businesses.

  • Latest CCTE facility opens at Hoover High

    Posted by Cynthia Reed-Porter at 9/26/2014 12:40:00 PM
    AOIT studio When classes began at Hoover High this year, students in the Academy of Information Technology (AOIT)were greeted with a new facility and equipment. AOIT is a College, Career & Technical Education (CCTE) program that serves 300 students.
     
    The more than $2 million renovation project involved remodeling the existing 5,400-square-foot second floor area of Building 700 into an integrated media communications technology facility that enables students to gain hands-on experience with equipment they would encounter in the industry. The existing space was stripped and reconstructed to include:
    • AOIT classroom Soundproof systems lab with a control room
    • Three multimedia editing bays and one soundproof studio editing bay
    • Server room with a dedicated 24-hour climate control system
    • Two classrooms with a total of 68 student workstations
    • Two instructors’ offices
    • Meeting room
    • Two storage rooms
    The district's Facilities Planning & Construction Division and CCTE work together to design, plan and construct new facilities for the various CCTE programs, most of which are located on high school campuses. The construction projects are funded by San Diego Unified's Props. S and Z, with matching funds from California's Prop. 1D. The CCTE projects (completed, under construction and planned) represent an investment of nearly $80 million into the district's students and school communities.
     
    Hoover's AOIT was established in San Diego in 2003 by an innovative teacher and visionary, Ellen Towers. This small learning community, or school-within-a-school, began with only 35 eleventh-graders, four willing teachers (one English, one U.S. history, one web design and one chemistry), and a room equipped with 30 computers. The following year, the AOIT quadrupled its size with 60 tenth-graders and 60 eleventh-graders. Today, this innovative program is a model academy boasting 300 students, 11 full-time teachers and eight classrooms with adjoining computer labs.

    The AOIT program continually cultivates a powerful, cohesive, personalized and small learning community within the larger, comprehensive high school. Students voluntarily join the academy through a recruitment process conducted each January of the school year. Once AOIT members, students enroll in elective courses in web architecture, social media marketing, technical support services, geographical information systems, and multimedia. Students receiving an “A” or “B” in these elective courses are eligible for college credit through an agreement with the San Diego Community College District. These elective courses are paired with content area classes such as world history, U.S. history, English, chemistry and biology.
     
    Teachers plan together across the curriculum in teams and create technology-driven projects that emphasize core content knowledge in a standards-driven curriculum. This integrated approach to curriculum often uses authentic and relevant project-based learning strategies to motivate students. In addition, because students have access to cutting-edge technology in all AOIT classes, they soon realize that developing advanced technological skills help them with college and career goals. This helps to further motivate students to become excited about the future. Technological integration into the core subjects inspires students to attend school and to learn more.
     
    To date, the  district has built/remodeled 18 CCTE facilities for programs that include automotive technology, broadcast journalism, business management, child development, construction/green construction, culinary arts, engineering, graphic design and screen printing, information technology, motion picture, multimedia and broadcast production, as well as sustainable technologies (power and energy).
     
    Three additional CCTE facilities are currently under construction. They include an Academy of Business Technology, a production studio and a biomedical sciences facility. Another five facilities are in the planning and/or design phase including an Academy of Engineering & Design and four other facilities for construction, fabrication and design, culinary arts and sustainable technologies.
     
    For more details on CCTE and its programs, click CCTE or call 858-503-1758. Visit the Propositions S and Z website for more information on the capital improvement bond program. You may also e-mail SDUSDFacilitiesInfo@sandi.net or call 858-637-3604 if you have questions about Props.

  • Language Academy celebrates campus upgrades

    Posted by Cynthia Reed-Porter at 8/26/2014 12:15:00 PM
    Language Academny ribbon cutting
    San Diego Unified School District’s Language Academy officially dedicated its newly revitalized campus complete with new, green classroom buildings, a new student drop-off/pick-up area and campus-wide air conditioning. On July 16, more than 700 students joined parents, community members and district leaders for this celebratory event at the College Area school.

    Students led the Pledge of Allegiance in English, Spanish and French. (Language Academy offers bilingual immersion courses in English, Spanish and French.) Another student sang the National Anthem. Immediately following the dedication ceremony, guests were able to tour two of the new classrooms and see the other improvements. 
     
    The nearly $11 million two-story classroom project at Language Academy involved replacing 16 portable classrooms with 16 new permanent classrooms. The main facility is a 24,761-square-foot, L-shaped building with 14 classrooms. In addition, the 700 building was expanded by 4,112-square-foot by constructing a new, two-story addition that houses a music classroom and science classroom. These two special classrooms were being added to address the school’s K-8 curriculum needs.

    The design of the new facility provides for sustainable learning and teaching environments by utilizing natural daylight and natural ventilation in all classrooms. The upper-floor balcony and walkway of the new building will include different geometric shapes and color panels with a screen wall system, creating a layering effect with light. The building design will accommodate the future installation of a solar system, which will greatly offset the energy consumption at the site and promote the implementation of green technology.
     
    A new student drop-off/pick-up area was also constructed off of Montezuma Road, and additional parking was created on campus. Under a separate project, Language Academy received campus-wide classroom air conditioning. The work is part of the Board of Education’s 2013 decision to bring relief to students in the district’s 2,000 hottest classrooms, nurse’s offices, and other critical student spaces. The more than $1 million air conditioning project included: 11 energy efficient rooftop package units, air duct work, programed thermostatic controls, compliant with district energy management standards, and additional electrical panels.

  • Air Conditioning for Our Schools

    Posted by Cynthia Reed-Porter at 5/16/2014 4:15:00 PM
    air conditioning  The installation of classroom air conditioning is managed by the district’s Facilities Planning & Construction (FPC) division through an accelerated delivery method. The work is part of the Board of Education’s 2013 decision to bring relief to students in the district’s 2,000 hottest classrooms, nurse’s offices, and other critical student spaces.
    The process includes architectural/engineering assessments, planning work with site administrators, design development, contracting, Division of the State Architect (DSA) plan approvals, scheduling, and construction. Electrical service will be upgraded where needed. The goal is to accomplish the work during evenings, weekends, and school breaks.

    Background
    Several measures have been taken to accelerate the installation of single-classroom air conditioning systems for permanent classrooms and window air conditioning units for active bungalows. Five architectural teams assessed and designed air conditioning and electrical upgrades at 2,000 classrooms with the greatest need in district’s traditional and charter schools. The schools are listed below. A fast-track review process starting in October 2013 delivered approvals on more than half of the design plans through April 2014 as the result of full coordination between FPC and the DSA. Immediately after the air conditioning construction contracts were awarded by the Board of Education, five construction teams started working after school hours, during holidays and vacations. Air conditioning at 11 schools is being completed as part of their whole site modernization projects.

    Construction Progress
    Air conditioning installations have been completed in 85 classrooms at three schools. Construction is currently underway in 928 classrooms. This momentum will increase over the summer, which affords longer working hours with classes out of session. There are 29 schools that are projected to be completed by fall 2014. The remaining schools will be completed prior to fall 2015.

  • Engineering students visit Hoover HS construction project

    Posted by Cynthia Reed-Porter at 5/8/2014 6:40:00 AM
    SABE students Students in the Sustainable Academy of Building and Engineering (SABE) at Hoover High School toured the new Academy of Information Technology (AOIT) in mid-April to get a first-hand look at what an active construction site is like. They also talked to the project team members for the district and the general contractor about their roles and responsibilities. SABE focuses on sustainable building techniques and career opportunities in the energy and construction fields
     
    AOIT is a College, Career & Technical Education (CCTE) project funded by a California Proposition 1D grant and Proposition S. The project involves remodeling the existing 5,400-square-foot second floor area of Building 700 into an integrated media communications technology facility that will enable students to work in an environment and with equipment that they would encounter working in the industry. The existing space was stripped and reconstructed to include:
    • Soundproof systems lab with a control room
    • Three multimedia editing bays and one soundproof studio editing bay
    • Server room with a dedicated 24-hour climate control system
    • Two classrooms with a total of 68 student workstations
    • Two instructors’ office
    • Meeting room
    • Two storage rooms

    For more details on the project, click Hoover High School, and scroll down to "Project Schedules." For more details on CCTE and its programs, visit www.sandi.net/CCTE or call 858-503-1758. For further information on Propositions S and Z, visit www.sandi.net/Facilities, e-mail SDUSDFacilitiesInfo@sandi.net or call 858-637-3604. Media inquiries should be directed to Cynthia Reed-Porter, communications supervisor, at creed-porter@sandi.net or 619-546-3378.
