Sylvan Learning Center

Project Information

The Sylvan Learning Center tenant improvement project in Hermosa Beach, California, was a fast-paced design and construction challenge.

The goals of the project were to stay within the tight budget of about $40,000, create two learning spaces, a secure reception area and the director’s office. The schematic design began in February 2019, and construction was completed in September 2019.

Design Details

The property is located on a lot adjacent to the Redondo Beach city limits; in fact, about half of the existing shopping center and parking is within Redondo Beach’s jurisdiction.  This split property created additional challenges with parking requirements and thankfully were resolved quickly.

The tenant space footprint was a tiny 1,109 square feet, and to stay within the tight budget parameters, most of the existing framing remained in place, and framing was added to comply with the program’s requirements.

The construction phase was very fast.

One of the only major challenges was the discovery of a large concrete grade beam under the existing bathroom.

Since the client did not have access to any existing drawings, we had to make some design changes to the bathroom, not only to ensure plumbing fixtures didn’t conflict with the existing structure but also to upgrade to current accessibility requirements.
