BS in Construction Management
For years, K-12 education has been taught through separate, individual subjects such as Math, English, Art, and Science. Primary education has remained stagnant while our society is constantly evolving with technological advances and innovation. The Peace Academy of the Sciences and Arts in San Luis Obispo, California are a group of visionaries and educators challenging traditional learning styles. They are striving to offer an education that focuses on holistic learning and integrating all subjects into big ideas to create competent, compassionate leaders for the future. My senior project is a collaboration between Journeyman International, the Peace Academy, a student in Architecture, and a student in Landscape Architecture. There is no current home for the Peace Academy, however they are interested in a 350 acre-ranch off of Los Osos Valley Road in San Luis Obispo. They want to develop an eco-friendly school equipped with adaptable spaces such as a Recreation Center, K-8 Learning Spaces, High School, Cafeteria, and Retreat Center. The purpose of my project with the help of my fellow architecture students is to assist the Peace Academy by developing a preconstruction package. My main deliverables as the construction manager include a site plan, phasing plan, estimate, and schedule.
