Vacaville High School
Architect: Rainforth Grau Architects
In January 2018 students, teachers, staff, and administrators at Vacaville High School commenced the new year with two new, high performance, two-story buildings. As part of the Vacaville Unified School District’s Measure A Bond program for facility improvements, the campus received a 15-classroom Mathematics building and a comparable English building.
Built by Enviroplex in partnership with Rainforth Grau Architects and stakeholder members of the Vacaville Unified School District, the new buildings delivered a combined 30,700 square feet of additional learning space.
The feature-rich buildings include multi-fixture tiled restrooms, custodial and janitorial spaces, a primary fire alert control room and a staff workroom. Concrete in-filled balconies and impressive eight-foot wide stair towers provide students an inclusive atmosphere for peer interaction. The new high-tech features include custom learning walls and sustainable design components that will provide students with a productive learning environment and the school district with energy savings for years to come.

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.”
“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.”
