Chugiak High School Renovations
UNIT was selected as the general contractor on a remodel and addition to Chugiak High School. This project is Phase II of a multi year program to completely upgrade the facility. The project includes the addition of a new 15,000 square foot gymnasium and a 27,000 square foot cafeteria and commons area. Among the other improvements is an elevated running track as well as new kitchen and food preparation amenities. These new facilities are being built in the center of the existing school while classes are in session which creates a number of unique challenges.
The required demolition portion of the project was largely completed prior to the start of the new school year, however new construction was on going through the winter. As a result, we worked diligently to coordinate the activities of all of the subcontractors, the Anchorage School District, and the onsite school staff to avoid disruption of the school schedule.
We also worked closely with the owner and design team to resolve the many unforeseen challenges that can occured with a remodel of this size. We were successful in keeping the project on schedule.
