Alameda County had a need for after school activities that would help neighboring high school students develop in a positive fashion and be better prepared for life after graduation. A former grocery store at 88th Avenue and MacArthur Boulevard in Oakland was transformed into a multi-agency center to serve the youth and families of Oakland. mack5 worked with the architect providing comprehensive cost plans at the initial stage to determine necessary funding and provide direction for the design team. During the design phase, mack5 further assisted with value engineering expertise and Change Order reviews. The center includes classrooms for school-based programs, including computer learning, painting and sculpture, computer graphics, and physical arts. The facility also houses a laboratory and pharmacy, meeting rooms, offices for staff, a “Cyber Café,” and the “Living Room” and little theatre, an informal gathering space for the youth and community to be together.
