Newport-Mesa Unified School District
Security has become a top priority in many schools across America, and Studio+ is proud to partner with Newport-Mesa Unified School District to help study their campuses and determine if further security enhancements are desired.
Master Planning and Conceptual Design for School Security
We worked with Newport-Mesa Unified School District to provide Master Planning and Conceptual Design services for new perimeter campus fencing, gates, and Administration Building alterations with the goal to better secure the campus. We also administered architectural and structural engineering services to improve perimeter security fencing at Ensign Intermediate School and Corona del Mar High School and Middle School. Safety is an extremely important initiative design development, construction documentation, agency approval, construction administration, and close-out phases of the project.
Corona del Mar High School and Middle School
We collaborated with Corona del Mar High School and Middle School to minimize the number of public points onto the campus and funnel all visitors through the existing Administration Building when school is in session. Safety is extremely important so we provided design services of new perimeter campus fencing, gates, and circulation with the goal to better secure the campus. We also had to take into account any alternations for the design of the new stadium and vehicular and pedestrian circulation around the campus.
Ensign Intermediate School
The goal of this project is to create one public point of entry onto the campus at the existing Administration Building. An important safety feature for students and staff is to ensure all visitors during school hours utilize this one point of entry to access the campus. Design features that we assisted with included: New perimeter campus fencing, gates, and Administration Building alterations. Just like at Corona del Mar, we had to pay close attention to other functions that affect campus security, such as trash pick-up, delivery locations, bike storage, parent and bus pick-up and drop-off, reunion gates, fire access gates, and safe dispersal areas.
