Barnhart Group Wins School District
PinnacleOne/Barnhart, a joint venture between San Diego-based
Douglas E. Barnhart Inc. and Tempe, Ariz.-based PinnacleOne,
was selected as the program and construction manager
for $251 million worth of projects in the Poway Unified
The joint venture will oversee repairs, renovations,
and expansions at 24 of the district's schools. Last
year, voters approved Proposition U, which contributed
$198 million to the construction effort.
The construction program will replace aging portable
classrooms, upgrade inadequate plumbing and electrical
systems, install energy-efficient mechanical systems,
make schools compliant with safety and access codes,
and build new permanent classrooms to relieve overcrowding.
NTD Architects of San Diego is the architect for the
first five projects. Construction on the first four
projects is expected to start in the summer of 2004.
PinnacleOne/Barnhart is managing a similar program for
the Oceanside Unified School District with $125 million
in bond funding.
