This contract began as a field observation requested for JHAI to visit over 150 school campuses and verify existing conditions and create detailed program reports onto necessary improvements bringing the schools to current accessible code standards. JHAI was hired as access compliance experts in ADA regulations and institutional experience. JHAI worked on every aspect of code compliance ranging from site accessibility and entrance door way standards to playground equipment and bathroom requirements. After completing the verification phase on these campuses JHAI was granted the next phase of the project. The next step was designing, completing construction documents, receiving approvals from LAUSD and DSA, assisting with the bid process, and construction administration. We worked very closely with LAUSD project managers and their independent inspectors.
JHAI's services with Los Angeles Unified School District for campus modernization vary from requirements from access compliance upgrades to modernization improvements for different campuses. These ADA code compliance upgrade projects have expanded into full modernization projects with high school auditoriums and their support facilities, State of Art Communication, Media, and Technology Centers as well as Fabric Shade Structures.
JHAI continues to work with the LAUSD on various projects and has been recently awarded a 5 year contract for Asset Management.
