Another Proposition O project got under way Tuesday afternoon with a ground-breaking ceremony for the Hilltop High School renovation project.
Hilltop High is receiving a $25 million makeover that will add classrooms, an industrial technology facility and five new buildings.
The project will entail constructing a new two-story 16,147-square-foot classroom building that will house 24 classrooms; a new 5,896-square-foot industrial technology facility; and four existing buildings will be torn down and replaced with four new classroom buildings totaling 8,690 square feet.
The project is slated to be completed in early 2011 and is part of the Sweetwater Union School District Proposition O school bond program, a $644 million measure passed in November 2006 that calls for repairs and new infrastructure for all of the district’s 32 campuses.
The Chula Vista area high school project is designed to reach LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, helping the entire Proposition O construction program become the largest LEED school bond project in California.
