Skanska provided construction management services for this project which is the second of a pair of schools to become a prototype elementary school for the School District of Clay County. The school consists of 127,790 SF of new construction on a 25 acre site with over half mile entry road to accommodate 862 student stations in Kindergarten through 5th grades. The main building is all under one roof with the cafetorium designated as an EHPA shelter. Two small support buildings for PE storage / group restroom and custodial receiving / chiller / pumps / electrical complete the structures. Further improvements included site work and athletic fields, concrete tilt wall, with interior steel and joists, standing seam metal roof, metal studs w/drywall, 2x2 lay-in ceilings, VCT flooring, complete mechanical, electrical and plumbing with a fire alarm system, fire sprinkler system, and emergency generator.
Benefits for the community
This new elementary school relieves overcrowding in a fast growing area of Clay County. The school meets the EHPA (enhanced hurricane protection areas) guidelines to provide an emergency evacution shelter for community residents during hurricane seasons.
