Alvarado School
Francisco School
San Francisco, California

San Francisco has an inventory of elegantly designed, but poorly maintained public schools. They date from the 1920's and 1930's. The Facilities Management Division of the Unified School District is responsible for upgrading the facilities.

Kirk Miller acted as a consulting project manager for the addition of kindergartens, the upgrading and additions of kitchens, and the enlargement and addition of playgrounds to 10 urban schools.

He was responsible for analyzing the constraints that the existing buildings placed on renovations, interviewing faculty and staff researching and creating the design program for the spaces, over-seeing the design, cost estimating, bidding, construction oversight, and helping with the start-up usage of the spaces.
