The CTE renovations at Aloha High School in Beaverton School District provide an adequate learning space for technology-driven educational practices, and promote program awareness through signage design. The CTE classes are split into three main areas; Area 1 contains the Computer Science and Media and Film classrooms; Area 2 contains the CADD classroom, new Maker Space, and Construction Lab; and Area 3 houses three classrooms where the Business and Marketing classes are held. The renovations include modernizing the interior spaces with new lighting and finishes, creating better access and collaboration between the Construction Lab, CADD classroom, and new Maker Space, providing separate entries for the Marketing classrooms, and providing adequate exiting for fire and life safety.
This project was born of a specialized scope, supplementing Aloha High School's education curriculum by means of improved, contemporary classroom design for the Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs. CTE robotics, computer aided design and drafting, film and media, and a construction lab, along with traditional classroom updates for their marketing and flex classrooms. Additionally, the high school went through a complete seismic retrofit to meet the SRGP standards. Shear walls, roofing, and mechanical upgrades were included throughout the high school.
