A unique collaboration between San Jose Evergreen Community College District, and Milpitas Unified School District, the new Joint Use 21st Century Education Center provides 13,000 square feet of new classrooms for high school and college students. The classrooms are designed around a central courtyard and a Hub, to foster collaboration and learning. High school students will use the building during the day and college students will use the building at night. The new building provides lecture classrooms, biology lab, robotics, technology and standard classrooms. Designed to be LEED Silver, the building incorporates several sustainable and efficient building systems.
The Marin County Office of Education hired JL Modular to build a new continuation school campus on their current grounds. The four-building campus was built utilizing modular construction, but had several custom elements such as a curved roof and clerestory roof frames. The exterior of the building was clad with plaster and Hardie siding. Each building has large lower windows, clerestory windows, and solatubes to provide ample natural daylight. Large canopies and sunshades are provided at each doorway and at sun facing windows.
The classroom interiors are large, light, and bright and four of the classrooms are connected with a series of glass partitions and operable partitions to open up into one large classroom for collaborative learning. The campus was built to a high-performance modular spec and utilized natural daylighting and controls, reduced water usage, energy efficient HVAC systems, enhanced insulation, and recycled materials.
Faced with a growing enrollment and aging buildings, this school district took the ambitious approach of demolishing over half of their existing campus to build 26 new classrooms in two separate buildings. The district chose to use the design-build delivery for the two-phase construction, which also included a central quad.
In Phase I, JL Modular was hired to design and build a new two-story 28,000 square foot classroom building. The two-story building consisted of 20 classrooms, 4 restrooms, a teacher's lounge, an interior corridor, and an elevator. Phase II added an 8,000 square foot single-story classroom building.
The entire 32,000 square foot project was completed in 7 months, minimizing the amount of time students had to spend in temporary portable classrooms.
The College of Marin Child Study Center is a 6,300 square foot design build building housing the facilities of the Early Childhood Education department of the college. The building has admin offices, child interaction and observation rooms, and classrooms. JLC built the facility to LEED Silver standards. Some of the sustainable features include a quiet and efficient Mitsubishi heating and cooling system, efficient direct-indirect lighting, natural daylighting with large windows and skylights, and water-efficient plumbing fixtures. JLC teamed with JL Modular on the project to provide a large outdoor deck, landscaping, and play structures.
The San Francisco Unified School District chose to use JL Modular for the third time to replace their aging portables with high quality, permanent modular classrooms. JLC and JLM combined to provide a full school modernization and new design-build modular classroom buildings.
While JLC performed the sitework and existing building modernizations, JL Modular was fabricating buildings off-site and was able to install two new classroom wings in just over two months, allowing the classrooms to be used for the start of the new school year. The classrooms utilized a steep roof pitch and high plate height to allow for clerestory windows, and also installed large skylights in each of the classrooms, providing enough daylight to use the classrooms without artificial light.
The buildings were tied together with a large, prefabricated shade structure and covered walkway.
Construction of a new modular classroom building and all associated site work. The building features five new classrooms and exterior restrooms. Each classroom has extensive natural daylighting and Solatubes for natural light and energy efficiency.
Project consisted of construction of three new buildings including two classrooms and a school administration building. Project includes all related site work and new building construction and JLM completed work in seven weeks.
Shoreline Unified School District chose JL Modular to build a new music and math classroom building utilizing modular construction at the West marin School. The two buildings were built in just under two months over the summer to allow the school district to occupy the buildings for the new school year. The structure replaced two aging portables to give the school permanent classrooms that matched the aesthetics of the school and would last just as long.
The music building features a large 10-foot double door that opened to a small amphitheater to allow students to practice and perform just outside of the music room.
The SCOE Community School is a new campus consisting of two new classroom wings built to form an interior courtyard and play area. JLM constructed the new buildings utilizing slab on grade modular buildings with a site built metal stud wall with custom curved track tops between each classroom to give the campus a Southwestern look. The landscaping was completed with palm trees, succulents, and desert tone pavers and plaster to complete the look.
The Community School included administrative offices, a warming kitchen, gymnasium, child care, and classrooms. The metal roofs had Solatubes for natural daylight and thin film solar panels to provide the majority of the school’s power. The project was built to LEED requirements, but certification was not pursued by the District.
