Thanks to the flexibility of Lease-Leaseback, Sundt was able to accommodate the owner’s last-minute request to complete a portion of the school ten weeks early so it could be used for summer school. The project team met the accelerated deadline by shifting focus from the entire project to those specific areas that would be in use early, while continuing to forge ahead on the project overall.
The Yuba City Unified School District’s new 85,000-square-foot Riverbend Elementary School was completd well within budget and in plenty of time for the beginning of the school year thanks to the Lease-Leaseback delivery method. 
In just 15 months, Sundt was able to turn the 21-acre site into a state-of-the-art school campus that includes an administration building, library, gymnasium/multipurpose building, kindergarten building, and three remote restroom buildings. Also included in the contract was the installation of 39 modular buildings on concrete slabs to accommodate future growth.
