CJA worked with an existing office building to create a new home for Christo Rey Sacramento High School. The services for this 48,000 s.f. project included programming, entitlement processing, tenant improvements and interior design. The big challenge tackled by our architects was gaining approval through the City of Sacramento for the change in use from an office to an educational facility.
Major upgrades were made to the existing building's systems, including HVAC, electrical and fire suppression. New spaces include a large multi-purpose room, a kitchen , administrative offices, counseling center and classrooms. Laboratories for physics, science, biology, and art were also added.
Pops of school color can be spotted throughout the campus and the big, bright classrooms are equipped to provide students with all they need to succeed.
