Charlotte County Public Schools Punta Gorda Middle School

Punta Gorda Middle School was a replacement school project after the Hurricane Charley disaster in 2004. The project was built to house the students who had been located in modular trailers since the hurricane hit and also to provide for the future growth of Charlotte County of up to 1,274 students. After the existing school was completely razed, Ajax began work on a new 172,000sf Middle School for Charlotte County. This new school combined 4 interconnected buildings (Classroom, Administration, Cafetorium & Gymnasium), consisting of Structural Steel, Concrete, Masonry, Veneer Brick and Standing seem Metal Roof. Unique to this project was working together with Charlotte County Public Works and City of Punta Gorda in coordinating and orchestrating Road and Utility improvements on all surrounding sides of the campus to improve an area that historically was subject to flooding. Also unique and challenging to this project was bringing on the first LEED Silver Certified Middle School in the State of Florida.
