Overview


In 2012, voters approved Measure GG, a $90 million bond measure funding facilities improvements for Inglewood Unified School District (IUSD). Several schools in the district lie along the flight path for Los Angeles International Airport. As a result, more than $30 million was pledged by the Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) for sound mitigation improvements. In 2020, Bond Measure I passed and authorized $240 million in bonds to provide our students with access to cleaner, safer, healthier, more up-to-date 21st century schools.

Cordoba’s Role


Since 2016, Cordoba Corporation has been the Facilities Improvements Program and Construction Manager for Inglewood Unified School District (IUSD) for projects funded by the District’s Measure GG and Measure I, Deferred Maintenance Program, Prop 39, State Emergency Repair Program, Los Angeles World Airports Sound Mitigation Program, and various grants provided by local industry partners.


Cordoba is a partner with IUSD to support the entire program by combining program and construction management services. Initially contracted to provide CM services, our professionals have become involved in every aspect of the bond program, including helping the District develop procedures for the bond program. Cordoba worked with the District’s Board of Education and Business Services Department and oversaw the development of a priority project list, master schedule, master budget and spending forecasts, facilities design standards, educational specifications, and facilities needs assessment. We also assisted the District in reestablishing the Bond Citizen’s Oversight Committee.


The team also worked with District stakeholders and helped develop a 10-year District Technology Master Plan as well as technology standards. The plan included an E-rate RFP WAN build, E-rate all site LAN upgrade design, and installation. Infrastructure assessments were also completed resulting in design models for the upgrading of cable plants for the entire district.

Highlights


  • Coleman Field Turf and Track Upgrades is a $5 million design-bid-build project that includes a resurfacing of the track, a new Astro turf for the football field, new goal posts, and a new LED scoreboard. Notably, this project stands out as it is funded through a combination of sources, with a substantial $4 million dollar donation from Nike specifically designated for the turf field, complemented by $1 million secured through bond funds. The Cordoba team worked with the Nike Company to manage their donation supporting the nearby area around SOFI Stadium in Inglewood in advance of the 2021 Super Bowl. While Nike established a partnership with IUSD, they were not familiar with the regulations pertaining to K-12 construction and renovation established by the state and the Division of State Architect (DSA). Our CM professionals worked with Nike’s internal architect to guide them through the DSA process and receive approval for the project. Once the project started, we provided CM services to implement the construction.

  • LAWA is providing over $40 million to implement sound mitigation projects at school sites that are adjacent to the airport’s flight path. Cordoba’s team is working in partnership with LAWA to manage the funding to provide for replacement of HVAC systems, windows, doors, and acoustical ceilings to minimize sound penetration from aircraft into the classrooms. Sound mitigation measures have been completed at Morningside High School, Oak St. Elementary School, Payne STEAM Academy, and Woodworth Monroe Middle School. The work continues and includes Inglewood High School, which is currently in design.
