Project Scope

Built in 2003, Vista Ridge HS fits the district’s category of a school exceeding 20 years of age and in need of a modernization.

Modernization of an existing facility involves the replacement of major building sub-systems including but not limited to roofing, elevators, air conditioning, lighting, electrical, plumbing, fire protection systems, built-in specialties and equipment, interior finishes and all furnishings that are at the end of the expected service life. Roof repairs will take place in specific sections across the campus to address leaks.
