Hayward Cherryland Elementary

In 2014, Alameda county voters passed a $229 million bond measure intended for building, modernizing, and upgrading local schools. One school that saw a complete overhaul was Cherryland Elementary School in Hayward, CA. In January 2018, construction began for the new campus on what was formerly the site of Sunset High School.

Project Overview

To realize this vision, the Hayward Unified School District partnered with Enviroplex and BHM Construction to create a community-focused, accessible learning environment spacious enough to accommodate up to 850 kindergarten through sixth-grade students.

Two kindergarten buildings that would complement the greater five-building campus including state-of-the-art features to enhance the learning environment.

A number of goals were set in the redevelopment of the new Cherryland School. Hayward Unified School District prioritized fostering relationship-centered schools that focused on community and families and serving a full range of student needs. This included addressing those students who were unable to cross-town in order to access specialized services such as dental care and therapy.

From Our Clients

“It is so great to see all of our children back at school. I really did miss them over the summer! And it is an extra special treat that our children are now in classrooms that are much more conducive for learning. The favorite comment from the children is, ‘the bathrooms are so clean and there’s green handles for the flushers.’ You have to love children’s expressions; I smile all day long.”

“The Evergreen School District has used Enviroplex buildings for over ten years. We have purchased over 150 classrooms, bathrooms, and library buildings in various configurations. The newer configurations with pitched metal roofs, stucco-like finish, thicker installation, and internal HVAC units have been well received by our teachers and community. We also appreciate Enviroplex’s commitment to deliver the buildings on time for our accelerated eight-week summer construction schedule. During the last two years we have purchased 39 units, and they were all received during the one week window we gave Enviroplex.”

James Crawford

Evergreen School District

“Our students and teachers are truly enjoying and appreciating your classrooms. Enviroplex delivered this project as promised, on time, per specification and with minimal change orders. I realize how difficult this can be on a multi-million dollar project. We are entirely satisfied with the feel and sound quality of your concrete paneled floor system. I have heard zero complaints from our “1st Floor Teachers”. Thank you again for a very favorable construction experience.”

“We are thrilled with the result of our beautiful renovation. We now have 5 new classrooms to replace our ‘1962’ portables and trailer. It has been exhilarating to watch the weekly progress this summer. Our landscaping, classroom and parking lot makeover has greatly improved our community school.”
