The modernization and expansion of E.O. Green Junior High was an extensive project.

Blackstock Junior High School, Port Hueneme, CaliforniaBlackstock Computer Room

The modernization of an existing school, while that school continues to operate, always requires careful planning and attention to detail -- while also being prepared for the inevitable unexpected "challenges."

The modernization of Blackstock Junior High School for the Hueneme School District was no exception. Budgetary considerations, a sewer system that turned out to be more deteriorated than originally thought -- many such factors combined to complicate the project.

However, with a well-developed architectural program and the combined efforts of architects, contractor, school staff, and the District, the upgrade of Blackstock came through on budget and with a minimum of disruption to the school process.
St. Bonaventure High School, Ventura, CaliforniaSt. Bonaventure Entry

St. Bonaventure, a private Catholic high school, has long been an important part of the local community. When Lauterbach & Associates, Architects was chosen to provide the architectural services for their new administration and classroom building, it was recognized that the integration of the new with old campus would be extremely important.

The materials were chosen to relate to the existing campus context, while the Mediterranean sensibility of the design, with arches and towers, provides a dramatic focus for the campus and student plaza.
