450 Architects, in collaboration with Studio Green, has provided landscape design and construction administration services for multiple San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) school sites for the 2006 Proposition A Bond Green Schoolyard Program. The bond program construction budgets are less than $100,000 per site and the construction schedules are extremely compacted. However, 450 Architects was able to create highly impactful and relevant designs operating under these constraints. As a public agency, SFUSD is required to publicly bid all construction contracts and accept the lowest responsive, responsible bidder. 450 Architects delivered detailed construction drawings and specifications articulating the goals of the District and school community in order to bring the outdoor classroom experience to fruition. 450 Architects also worked diligently to ensure these goals were translated into a finished product by the contractor. It has been a pleasure working with an organization that is highly professional and passionate about their work and their clients.
