Santa Ana, CA (August 27, 2018) – SVA Architects has teamed with Fremont Unified School District to redesign Horner Middle School. Located at 41365 Chapel Way in Fremont, CA, the school is converting from a junior high to a middle school serving nearly 2,000 students. What began as a modernization and expansion transformed into a redesign of the entire campus. The Horner Middle School Conversion project demonstrates SVA Architects’ innovation and solutions-driven approach to delivering optimal design to each of its clients.

Upon studying the master plan, budget, and constraints of the Horner Middle School Conversion project, the design team realized that a completely new campus could be provided within the budget, using creative site development and design. In the first phase, currently underway, the existing campus operations are continuing as normal while new buildings are being constructed on the playfields. During the second phase, the staff and students will relocate to the new buildings, and the existing buildings will be demolished and replaced with new athletic fields. Construction is anticipated to be complete in 2020.

Robert Simons, AIA, President of SVA Architects, states, “The opportunity to bring Horner Middle School the latest technology, while accommodating the increase in enrollment as it transitions, was a very rewarding challenge! Horner is now ready to greet current needs, and is prepared to meet anticipated growth. It was a pleasure working with a solutions-orientated team!”
