PBK was added to the District’s roster in the summer of 2017 and has been working with the district to identify matching funds for their high school’s Career Technical Programs, as well as modernizing Cedarlane Academy, a unique Korean and Chinese immersion school. PBK completed a series of interviews, several community meetings, a handful of presentations, and a final design competition prior to being awarded the project by the District. This will be PBK’s first new, ground-up project in southern California.
