Paden Elementary School upgrade completed with Measure I funds
By: Alten Construction Company
Alten Construction started the project June 11 and completed it in time for school to resume Aug. 20. The $3.29 million project included a complete window replacement, an AV data electrical upgrade and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility upgrades. The architect on the project was Mark Quattrocchi with Quattrocchi Kwok Architects (QKA).
"Even with the amount of work involved and the time limitations, we were able to accomplish what the district wanted without disrupting school activities,"
The project also included new technology infrastructure and data in all of the classrooms, ADA improvements and bathroom modernization.
"The Paden Elementary School modernization was one of the important projects identified in our Alameda Unified School District 2014 Master Planning work," said QKA Principal Mark Quattrocchi, who also authored the district's 2014 Facilities Master Plan. "With the partnership of Alten Construction and their dedication to quality, the project brings a vast improvement for students and teachers alike."
The Paden project is part of Alameda Unified School District's $179 million Measure I facilities bond project, which was approved by Alameda voters in 2014.
