Perris High School is the oldest campus in Perris Unified High School District (PUHSD) having been built in the late 1950’s, and had its first graduating class in 1962. The original campus has withstood the test of time and served the students of the Perris community throughout the 50-plus years that it has been the anchor of the District’s four High Schools. There have been some renovations and updates over the years, but the current work, which will expand, rehabilitate and upgrade the campus, is part of a major overhaul that is scheduled to be completed in 2020 to completely transform the 2,500-student campus.
Daniel’s Electric has finished the 46,776 square-foot 2-story Media Arts Building as a part of Phase 2 construction. Additionally, we are currently on site completing the 30,000 square-foot Vocational Education and Instructional Technology Building and the 12,700 square-foot 2-story Agricultural Technology Building (referred to as the Perris Agricultural Center for Excellence). The building will consist of agricultural classrooms, lab areas, a new floral shop and a very unique 2nd-story terrace garden. Other upgrades include removal of hazardous materials, upgrading fire safety, school security, and improving access for disabled persons.
Pacifica High School is a 78-acre campus that opened its doors in 1965 and is one of the first High Schools built for the Garden Grove Unified School District. The School District knew a new campus design was necessary in order to meet the needs of the over 1,800 students it serves. The District was able to secure $20 million of AB-300 funds for the 106,000 square-foot additions and modernization of its existing buildings.
The project involved reconfiguring parking and student drop-off areas, creating landscaped academic quads, adding five classroom buildings, a dedicated science building, a new student & staff dining hall, a new library media center, and a new 450-seat performing arts center — all without disturbances to day-to-day classroom activities. The additions were purposely designed to maximize natural daylighting to all classrooms to reduce overall campus energy consumption.
Daniel’s Electric utilized its knowledge of DSA and OPSC requirements for its over $4 million electrical portion of the project.
The Mt. San Antonio Community College (commonly called Mt. SAC) was created in December, 1945 and opened in the fall of 1946 with 635 students and was dedicated in 1948 by then local Congressman Richard M. Nixon. Today it is California’s largest single-campus community college with a combined Credit, Continuing Education, and Community Services enrollment of over 65,000 students; emerging as a leader in education in the State. In 2015 Mt. SAC proudly celebrated 69 years of educational excellence. The college will continue to offer access to quality programs and services as well as provide an environment for educational excellence throughout the 21st Century.
The Athletics Program is one of the most dominant community college athletics programs in the nation. The college has begun the process of transforming its 65-year-old stadium into a state-of-the-art and ADA compliant facility that is bidding to host the 2020 Olympic Track and Field Trials, bringing millions of dollars into the local community.
The $62 million new stadium will feature stadium seating to accommodate 11,000 spectators, which can expand to 25,000. Additionally, the 144,000 square-foot facility will include a field house with locker rooms, two weight rooms, two lecture halls, team rooms, offices, food services, restrooms, a new parking lot, and a digitally-wired press box that can accommodate the global media. The complex will be served by new 12Kv site improvements and will feature a state-of-the-art 50-foot multiple-sport scoreboard and new stadium lighting ranging from 70- to 160-ft.
Daniel’s Electric will work in conjunction with the college and Tilden-Coil Constructors, the Construction Manager for the $12 million electrical portion of the Project.
