With their current campus being a maze of ancient portable structures, the East Side Union High School District needed a permanent solution for their Adult Education campus. The solution was a combination of single and two-story modular buildings to be built around a central courtyard.
JLM took on the design-build project utilizing their traditional steel moment frame design for the single story buildings, and a prefabricated structural steel and metal wall framed design for the two story buildings. The new buildings provided 20 new classrooms, a full administrative office building, a student lounge building, a book room, and two computer labs.

Parkside Middle School New Classroom Buildings
Location: San Bruno, CA
Client: San Bruno Park School District
Architect: Persinger Architects
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.

Location: San Francisco, CA
Client: San Francisco Unified School District
Architect: SIM Architects
With an increasing enrollment and a tight site, San Francisco Unified School District had to build vertical to get the additional space they needed. They chose to build a new two story building with 11 classrooms and a teacher’s lounge utilizing modular construction and teamed with JLC for their fourth design-build project together. The ambitious project was completed in a 14-month timeline including bidding, design, DSA approval and all site work and new construction of the two story classroom building.
The building itself was built utilizing slab on grade, modular floor and roof frames and prefabricated wall panels allowing construction to be completed in less than 5 months. A separate elevator and stair tower was built so that the elevator would be incorporated into the building. The building was built right next to the existing classroom building so that they could be connected with expansion joints and share elevators, stairs, and teacher workroom facilities.
