Work Underway on New 70k sf Building for Malibu High School


Work has started on the first phase of Malibu High Schoolís expansion for Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District (SMMUSD). The 70k sf state-of-the-art building, scheduled for completion in fall of 2025, will feature a library, visual and performing arts classrooms, project-based learning facilities, multipurpose spaces, special education classrooms, STEM classrooms, a campus cafeteria, and administration offices. It is being built by C.W. Driver Companies.

Located a short mile from the Pacific Ocean at 30215 Morning View Drive, the $100 mil Malibu High School core building will be built on the site of the former Juan Cabrillo Elementary School campus, immediately adjacent to the existing high school. The new two-story building will embrace the schoolís environmental ethos in its design, with an open breezeway between concrete and copper-clad walls inspired by the native landscape. Outdoor common space for the schoolís students will be partially shaded by an overhead canopy with built-in photovoltaic panels that will generate power for the school and contribute to the campusí energy conservation.

The recent groundbreaking comes after C.W. Driverís extensive preconstruction, which involved the demolition and removal of nine buildings at the former elementary school (clearing approximately 38.9k sf of older construction). As part of that process, C.W. Driver was able to scope the photovoltaic panels under a design-build method to ensure proper design coordination with the roof steel trellis. Also, the demolition and abatement scopes were executed while the plans were with the Division of the State Architect (DSA) to ensure the construction end date could be met.

NAC Architecture is the design architect on the project. Other partners include Koning Eizenberg Architecture; demolition specialists AMPCO North; Pfeiler & Associates Engineers; California Solar Integrators, Inc.; and Hunsaker and Associates. The project is funded by Measure M, passed by Malibu voters in 2018.
