MEPT and Fire Protection design further enrich one of the nation's top performing schools
LAUSD is embarking on an expansive, design-build modernization project at the Sherman Oaks Center for Enriched Studies. Students can attend this magnet school from 4th to 12th grade and it consistently ranks as one of the best public high schools in the United States. Construction will be phased to allow the school to continue serving students throughout the project. The district anticipates that the project will be completed in late 2021.
P2S is providing MEPT, fire alarm and fire protection systems for the Design-Build modernization of LAUSD’s Sherman Oaks Center for Enriched Studies. The project consists of five new campus buildings, plus site improvements. P2S is designing this project to California Collaborative for High Permeance Schools Standards. New buildings include a two new 2-story sciences classroom building, a new elementary classroom building, new gym and new field house building. Complete modernizations will be made to an existing auditorium and admin building. The automatic fire alarm system will follow LAUSD’s guidelines and include a voice evacuation system. The fire protection design will include smoke detection and sprinklers in the new and renovated facilities. The fire alarm and fire protection design encompassed the entire campus and featured fire sprinklers to quickly control any fire situation at any campus building.
