Master Plan

Piedmont, CA

The Piedmont Unified School District (PUSD) faced a major need to improve the District’s two elementary schools, one middle school and two high schools to meet district educational program priority standards. QKA was retained by PUSD to conduct long-range facility master planning, with particular emphasis on the middle and high school campuses that faced chronic problems stemming from being undersized and lack of specialized classrooms.

The process of delivering an informed and clear Facilities Master Plan (FMP) began with dozens of design committee, town-hall style and small group input meetings at each of the five school sites to ensure all options were explored and that recommendations for new and modernized facilities supported the District’s educational program. The detailed plan provided PUSD with a roadmap to better understand how each phase of facility upgrades related to the next, and with clear associated cost estimates.
