Saiful Bouquet is the structural engineer for the $23M Corona del Mar Middle School Enclave Project. The enclave provides a campus-within-a-campus designed to give middle school students a place removed from older students. This two-building, 38,000 square foot facility includes an administrative building and science lab class rooms. The project utilizes Type V-B construction with steel frame and metal deck roofing.
The academic advantages to middle school students of access to more challenging curriculum, shared teaching between grade levels and co-use of support and athletic facilities will be augmented by creating a special place for them that houses their core classes. Designed to CHPS HPI and LEED for Schools standards, the Enclave focuses on resource efficiency and building design as a tool for teaching lessons relating to our impact on the natural environment.
