Role

Construction Manager

In the spring of 2016, Burbank School District 111 passed a referendum to fund the replacement of their existing K-6 facility, Luther Burbank School.

Upon passage of the referendum, the District immediately commenced their search for an architect and construction manager. ICI was chosen from among sixteen construction management firms through a competitive selection process based on our scheduling expertise and portfolio of similar work.

ICI partnered with the District and the architect throughout the design and preconstruction phase providing detailed cost estimates, project phasing and scheduling, long lead item procurement and site logistics planning.

The new 84,289 square foot school is being constructed on the same site as the existing school. The first floor houses 12 classrooms, 3 shared learning spaces, 3 pull out spaces, a cafeteria and adjacent kitchen, a gymnasium and multiple ancillary spaces. The second floor contains 9 classrooms, 3 shared learning spaces, 3 pull out spaces, a library, art and music rooms, a makerspace, special education areas as well as storage and a teacher lounge.

The school incorporates many eco-friendly elements including geo-thermal energy, an expansive rain garden and sunshades.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held in early June 2017 and construction is underway with a targeted completion date of summer 2018. Once the new school is constructed, ICI will demolish the existing school and complete all site work.

The 2018-2019 school year is then targeted to begin at the new Luther Burbank School in mid-August 2018.
