The Maker Space Studio presents a vision to stimulate students in a vibrant place for collaborative learning. Our proposal for the San Bernardino High School (SBHS) Building M Maker Space Project meets the vision by merging new space with existing space, creating an Innovation HUB for the career pathways and engaging the campus.
Space “A” Thursdays at 1 p.m. is a Studio Class but Fridays at 11 a.m. is an Engineering Class
Space “B” Mondays at 9 a.m. is a Studio Class but Tuesdays at 2 p.m. is a Space to Explore
Space “A” Wednesdays at 11 a.m. is a Studio Class but Fridays at 2 p.m. is a Robot Class
Wellness Garden & Art Area
This is a relaxing environment where students and teachers may collaborate on projects or enjoy nature. Landscape features are integrated into the Courtyard and Garden areas for sunlight filtration, and to “soften” the general hardscape environment of the campus. The garden is protected by a perimeter wall for student security and lighted for night use and may accommodate smaller scale community events such as art showcases or alumni gathering.
Celebrate Legacy and Future
The Legacy Gallery is positioned in the southernmost bay of the Maker Space Building, closest to the Administration Building. This space is where the 125 years of history and City Charter of 1963 that identified Cardinal City will be celebrated. Exterior and interior wall graphics will demonstrate a combination of program identity, school history and innovative spirit of San Bernardino High School.
The SBHS Maker Space building will incorporate standard systems for vertical and lateral loading while providing for column free, hi-bay flexible space. Features include:
Vertical System: A conventional continuous perimeter footing foundation system with perimeter reinforced concrete masonry walls (CMU) will be the primary vertical load carrying system.
Lateral System: The seismic and wind lateral force resisting system will consist of a conventional steel deck horizontal diaphragm, utilizing the perimeter metal stud and CMU walls as shear panels. The CMU will be the primary lateral force system in the longitudinal (NS) direction of the building.
Electrical / Technology Design
For the SBHS Maker Space project we will evaluate and propose options for updated power/data distribution in Building M4 and flexible layouts in the open area of the new structure. Evaluations would be based upon power use, installation and operations costs, and required level of flexibility. For the new structure considerations would include:
Underfloor Raceway System
Flush Floor Power/Data Outlets
Our proposal for the new Maker Space Building is an HVAC system that incorporates high efficiency, ease of maintenance and sensor controls for energy efficiency. Key features include:
High Efficiency Rooftop Packaged Heat Pumps
