La Jolla Country Day School – Upper School Expansion


Scope Ground Up/ Renovation

The La Jolla Country Day project consists of the improvement and expansion of the Upper School campus classrooms. Careful planning and project coordination was required, with construction performed during school holidays, and Spring and Summer breaks. In order to meet the required compressed project schedule, with non-negotiable start and completion dates, the Dempsey team assembled a superior team to work with LJCDS, and design architect Safdie Rabines of San Diego, to accelerate the schedule and complete the project on time.

  • A total of 27 Upper School classrooms and additional offices were upgraded and expanded to feature larger learning areas
  • All new interior finishes, more natural light, and natural ventilation
  • Exterior improvements included new glazing systems, exterior building finishes, landscaping, hardscape and collaboration areas for the students
