About the Project
Washington Unified School District in West Sacramento, CA developed River City High School on a a 65-acre site. The 267,000 square foot campus serves over 2,000 students. This state of the art learning center incorporates educational, cultural, and recreational facilities. The campus has five classroom buildings, an administration building with conference space, a black-box theater, video production studio, gymnasium and cafeteria with an outdoor courtyard.
It features a full array of athletic facilities, including a football stadium, baseball and softball diamonds, basketball and tennis courts, and soccer fields. Also on-site are swimming pools and an indoor training facility that are shared in a joint-use agreement with the City of West Sacramento.
Site work required a two foot over-excavation and three foot lime treatment in order to mitigate highly expansive native soils. The building was constructed primarily of structural steel framing members with some structural masonry and tilt-up concrete walls.
