About the Project

Part of Los Angeles Unified School District’s (LAUSD) aggressive $15 billion new school and renovation program, the $157 million, 610,000-SF, Edward R. Roybal Learning Center (aka Central Los Angeles High School #11, Belmont School) rests on 34 acres in the heart of downtown Los Angeles and included rehabilitation and new construction of a 5,100-seat year-round high school. Four existing three-story buildings totaling 500,000 SF were rehabilitated to create 88 new classrooms totaling 210,000 SF and three levels of underground parking totaling 290,000 SF. New construction included one 55,000-SF slab-on-grade auditorium, gymnasium, library, cafeteria building, one 55,000-SF classroom, administration building and a central plant. This project is the recipient of several awards, including the prestigious 2009 Marvin M. Black Excellence in Partnering Award.
