Two bond measures have provided funding for improvements across the Charter Oak Unified District, including building alterations for elementary and intermediate schools, and Charter Oak High School. Leighton’s services include geotechnical investigations, geotechnical observation and testing during construction, concrete sampling, masonry, welding, bolting special inspection services, as well as materials testing of concrete, masonry and steel rebar.

The Leighton Solution.

Charter Oak High School (the District’s only 9-12 school) has two new buildings and a new aquatic center with a National Federation of High School Associations regulation pool. The first building project on campus was a 15,000-square-foot addition to the gymnasium, followed by another classroom building.

For both of these projects, Leighton provided a geotechnical investigation and geo hazards review, and soils and materials testing. For the gymnasium addition, Leighton provided a subsequent foundation review which included recommendations for the excavation to maintain structural integrity of the existing building. The aquatic center completion added a 30-meter by 25-yard swimming pool for water polo, diving and swimming, and ancillary building for concessions, restrooms, a team room, and an equipment/storage room.
