Diede Construction was awarded this project in Early May of 2017. The building was in a dilapidated condition due to a devastating fire which made for many unforeseen conditions. However, the District goals were not only to re-build but bring the building back to life while maintaining its original design and aesthetics. We were able to combine the original architecture of the building with the modernization of today and we cannot wait for the final product to be revealed. The Project Manager, Blaine Vernon, and his team: Ashlie Ringeisen, Steve Wagner, and John Hixson, as well as MFDB Architecture, Inc have been a part of this project since the very beginning and they are now assisting in the finalization of the project which has a scheduled grand opening to the public in less than a month. Today, March 29, 2019, the news channel KCRA featured the building, and Elk Grove Citizen featured an article in the newspaper and this is what they had to say:
“ELK GROVE, Calif. (KCRA) —
Four years ago, an early-morning fire gutted an historic Elk Grove building — damaging the roof, the interior and the building’s systems. Now, that 1920s-era schoolhouse is about to reopen to the public for the first time since a $10 million effort to rebuild and restore the building.
Cosumnes Community Services District staff were recently allowed to move back into the rebuilt building at 8820 Elk Grove Boulevard.
However, because the building currently has a “temporary occupancy” permit, the public is not yet allowed any further inside the building than the front lobby.
So staff offered a series of still pictures as a sneak peek of what the interior of the building now looks like.
Those associated with the construction stressed that while the exterior of the building retained its historic brick facade, the inside and rear entrance is completely modernized.
The building is expected to reopen to the public next month.”
