The Construction And Renovation Of Stanton College Preparatory School Was Divided Into Three Phases. Phase I Consisted Of The Renovation Of The Administration And Faculty Lounge Areas, Which Occurred During The Summer Of 2001.
Phase II Consisted Of The Construction Of A 1-Story Addition At The North Side Of The Science Lab Classrooms And The Subsequent Renovation Of Both Floors Of The Science Labs. This Work Began In August 2001, And Lasted 7 Months.
Phase III Involved The Renovation Of The First And Second Floor Classrooms On The South Side Of The Main Building, Renovation Of The Media Center And Site Improvements. The Site Improvements Included A New Retention Pond And Associated Storm Drainage Work And The Renovation Of The Existing Student Parking Lot. The Project Was Substantially Complete In July 2002.
Phase 1 included building the new school campus in the location of the old athletic fields. This required keeping the existing campus in operation and to maintain the required separation between construction and the occupied school site. Once completed students moved into the new building and phase 2 began with demolition of the original structure.
Maintaining clear separation again between construction and school operations, Phase 2 was completed with installation of new athletic fields (softball, baseball, football, track) in the location of the original buildings.
This project was another success for Ajax Building Corporation and Duval County Public Schools and has led to the 4th consecutive project to be built by Ajax Building Corporation, a new K-8 complex on the existing site of Northshore Elementary School.
