Work done on Weston in Ripon
Placeholder Image

The Weston Elementary School remodeling is officially completed.
Trustees of the Ripon Unified School District signed off on this voter-approved Measure G project during last week’s meeting.
In doing so, the board confirmed that the work by C.T. Brayton & Sons of Escalon was deemed finished effective Sept. 3.
Included was re-purposing of the existing Multi-Use Building to administration / classroom buildings as well as reconstruction to the campus – the new Multi-Purpose building and gym to go with the permanent classroom wings.
The contractor signed on to take on the job on July 29, 2014.
The grand re-opening of the campus took place last month, with those involved – Brayton, architect Timothy Huff, and the Program Management Integration team – receiving recognition.
The accolades continued as school officials just received the U.S. House of Representatives’ Certificate of Congressional Recognition as part of the Ripon Chamber of Commerce’s ribbon-cutting ceremony. Mike Anderson was on hand, representing 10th Congressional District Representative Jeff Denham (R-Turlock).
He presented the certificate to Weston Principal Lisa Fereria and school board President Ernie Tyhurst.
The Weston project was budgeted at $10.4 million although Khushroo Gheyara of PMI indicated prior to completion that the final figures are about a month or so away.
The next step is Colony Oak Elementary School.
The district just hired WLC Architects of Folsom to spearhead this project.
