Elk Grove, CA
November 2021–March 2023
The Elk Grove High School Modernization Project includes site-wide upgrades and new building additions constructed in three phases, with a total project value of $90 million and square footage of 90,000 SF for our client Flint Builders. Royal Electric was subcontracted for the second phase involving construction of a new 45,468 SF building with 29 classrooms, four breakout offices and restrooms, as well as an atrium to replace the high school’s existing portable facilities. Royal Electric’s scope included site work and installations of the electrical rooms as well as lighting, power, fire alarm, communication backbone cabling, and audio/visual systems.
The work began with the replacement of the local power company's, Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD), direct buried cable and relocation of a 12kV switch from inside the building's footprint to outside of it. This task was complicated when SMUD informed the general contractor that they were unaware of the line's exact location.
Another challenging aspect of the project involved the general contractor's innovative prefabrication approach for the interior walls of the building.
Royal was able to collaborate directly with Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD), keeping the owner informed of necessary changes, to develop solutions that benefited all stakeholders.
Royal's in-house Virtual Construction Department worked closely with the project team, successfully coordinating BIM Models for in-wall device fabrication.
