RGM and Associates has provided Construction, Program and Management services for the John Swett Unified School District since 2002. RGM has assisted the District with facility assessments, consultant selection, master planning, program development, budgeting, cash flow management and scheduling through two bond measures. RGM has facilitated the District’s interactions with the OPSC, DSA, DTSC, CDE and other agencies and assisted with OPSC application processes and provided expenditure reporting and close-out services.

During our tenure RGM has managed the abandonment of the District’s elementary school site and its replacement with a new $18 Mil elementary school campus. RGM acted as the General Contractor for the District’s new, two-story modular office building. In 2008, the JSUSD embarked on a $ 40 Million multi phased construction program to upgrade the John Swett High School and Willow Alternative High School campuses. RGM provided the program planning and management, helped the district obtain over $ 6 Million in Emergency Repair Grants and assisted in the application process for State SFP funding to supplement local bond funds.

RGM managed the replacement of the Willow campus classroom buildings, transformed the John Swett High School and athletic stadium facilities, including the construction of two new classroom buildings, which replace older campus structures and provide new instructional spaces. The multi phased program also involved extensive abatement and haz-mat site remediation under DTSC oversight and significant structural and modernization upgrades of the historic buildings which makes the 90-year old campus fully accessible. Work under the current Bond was completed in the fall of 2014. The District is asking the voters to approve a $52 Mil bond for further improvements at John Swett High School and rebuild Carquinez Middle school.
