LAUSD Edward R. Roybal Learning Center

About the Project

The LAUSD Edward R. Roybal Learning Center rests on 34 acres in the heart of downtown Los Angeles and includes the rehabilitation and new construction of a 5,100-seat year-round high school. Four existing three-story buildings were rehabilitated to create 88 new classrooms and three levels of underground parking. New construction included one slab-on-grade auditorium, gymnasium, library, cafeteria building, one 55,000 SF classroom, administration building and a central plant. This LAUSD project is the recipient of several awards, including the prestigious 2009 Marvin M. Black Excellence in Partnering Award.
