Crews are fast-tracking a summer modernization project at Glenshire Elementary School for Tahoe Truckee Unified School District. Upgrades include new flooring throughout, heating and cooling upgrades, room reconfigurations and more. The project’s Superintendent, Robert Foster, took us on a behind-the-scenes tour to give us an idea of the full scope of the project.
The area of the campus which will receive the biggest overhaul is the administration area. Upgrades include new window openings, new flooring, casework reconfiguration and more.
What was once a large teachers lounge will now be two separate spaces: One of the spaces will be a conference room with large exterior windows and the other space will be a cafe-style break room for teachers and staff.
Restrooms throughout the campus will all receive new flooring as well as ADA upgrades.
The 13 classrooms in the main campus will all receive upgraded heating systems as well as new flooring and paint.
The campus includes 14 modular classrooms, all of which will be receiving new heating and cooling systems, which will be set on concrete slabs.
Heating and Cooling System
The campus heating and cooling system will be replaced by a new state-of-the-art system that will be much more efficient.
The library will be re-carpeted and painted throughout. Book shelf height will also be changed in order to open up the space and allow for direct light and views through the rooms existing windows.
