Branciforte Elementary School Modernization

Branciforte Elementary

Site work involved expanding the existing staff/public parking lot to add approximately 18 new parking spaces. The existing student drop off/pick up driveway was modified to improve safety. A new concrete block trash enclosure was installed to locate the dumpsters away from the portable classrooms. Damaged portions of the main entry stairs at the front entrance of the building were rebuilt. To provide access for the disabled, a new elevator was installed. Other accessibility improvements included upgrading all student toilet rooms, installing new door hardware and adding a wheelchair lift to the stage.

Each classroom received new finishes; carpet, paint, ceiling replacement (where required), new cabinetry and new whiteboards. The main corridors, the administration area and the auditorium were also refinished. To meet current fire/life safety codes, the existing fire sprinkler system was upgraded and new fire doors were added at the bottom of the two existing stairways on the first floor. The existing (original 1915 vintage) steam boiler, piping and radiators were removed and replaced with a new hot water boiler, new piping and new unit ventilators. Additional electrical outlets, new data wiring, new phone/intercom system and a new fire alarm and intrusion alarm system were installed.

In June 2004, Branciforte Elementary School closed. As part of the Small Schools reorganization, Ark High, Monarch Elementary, Alternative Family Education (AFE), and Loma Prieta High moved onto the Branciforte Elementary School campus.
