Built at Carondelet High School in Concord, CA, the two-story, 18,000 sq. ft. Jean Hofmann Center for Innovation provides a flexible space to maximize interaction among students. The structure includes pedestrian bridges located on the north and south sides, which connect with existing campus buildings. The building also contains eight studio classrooms, with partitions that allow the rooms to change in size and connect with one another. Other amenities include a central atrium with a cafe and interactive video wall. Three bioretention facilities were constructed to facilitate stormwater management requirements. BKF provided complete civil engineering design and surveying services for the project. BKF supported the team in integrating the new building into the campus while accommodating existing infrastructure and constraints.
