Transformation of the Lynbrook High School Campus
On June 3, 2008, voters in the Fremont Union High School District passed Measure B, a $198 million school bond. Funding from Measure B supported the following construction projects at Lynbrook High School"
- Frontage Redesign
- Rafter Tail Repairs
- Track and Fields
- Solar Installation
- Library & Career Center Renovation
- Lynbrook Master Plan Development by Quattrocchi Kwok Architects
Due to the larger enrollment at the other schools in the district, the District and it’s Bond Management Team had to restructure the original Program Implementation Plan (PIP). CHS, HHS, MVHS and FHS needed additional classroom space. Based on the need for additional classrooms, larger facilities, and infrastructure modernization the Bond Management Team hired architects to Master Plan each site. These Master Plans will help ensure that projects are identified, prioritized, designed and executed in the proper order to allow for efficiencies in construction and site facility use while maintaining a unique vision for each campus.
On November 4, 2014, voters in the Fremont Union High School District by a vote of 64.84%, passed Measure K, a $295 million school bond. Out of Measure K, LHS is receiving a large portion of the funds, with three major projects funded. A large portion of funding from the last bond, Measure B, did go to several other schools in the district (particularly Fremont and Cupertino) due to the age of the facilities, the significant modernization needs that existed on those campuses, and enrollment growth needs.
The documents that result from the master process will include a conceptual drawing of the campus along with a narrative describing changes. It is important to note that the master plan is not a building plan. It will not reflect specific layouts or architectural designs for any of the facilities but will show the proposed development and locations of new facilities.
The first project in the transformation of the Lynbrook campus was the Field House Addition, which includes a weight room/fitness center, dance studio and and PE classroom. This multi-story building is situated behind the current Field House and across from Stober Field and Lynbrook Viking Stadium. Construction on this $7 million project was completed in Spring 2017.
Planning for Phase 2 began in Spring of 2016, with a team of teachers, parents, students and administrators providing input on the design of this vital area of campus. The schematic design was presented at the FUHSD board meeting on October 11, 2016, and the Board of Trustees subsequently approved the programming plans for the new Quad and Cafeteria. Construction on the $15 million project began in Summer 2018.
This will be the last planned Measure K Bond Project at Lynbrook. Programming for the conceptual design of Phase 3 began in 2018, with construction anticipated to begin in 2019 and completion targeted for 2020.
