Our Design Team...

As we continue our exciting Building for 2020 campaign, the planning could not be done without HUNDREDS of individuals assisting in the process. Below are those who are taking part in the weekly meetings that occur to reach our deadlines for the design process:

Owners Representative for VASD
Huffman Facility Development, Inc. has been chosen as the District's owner’s rep serving as a liaison between and among the district staff, the architects (EUA), construction manager (Findorff), subcontractors (yet to be selected), and other engaged parties. The owner’s rep will advance the district’s interests of highest quality materials, design and processes, cost controls and schedule. They will also provide advice, guidance and professional opinions pertaining to design constructibility and project coordination. In addition, the owner’s rep will provide onsite oversight of the construction process. We have hired an owner’s rep as the District has a fiduciary responsibility to the community to ensure your tax dollars are monitored closely, and spent wisely.

Building for 2020 Core Team
The Core Team consists of construction (Findorff) and architect professionals (Eppstein Uhen Architects), VASD staff, administrators and board members. This team meets every other week to discuss the countless items related to design, schedule, and site development. This team also took the input from the Visionary Design Team (mentioned below) to ensure design needs were met.

Visionary Design Team
The VDT was formed in May, 2017 to produce an overall design for the building, consisting of high school staff representing many departments, central office representatives, and our construction (Findorff) and architect (Eppstein Uhen Architects) professionals.
