Duval County Public Schools Rutledge Pearson Elementary
The project consists of a new prototype K-5 elementary school with a single 2-story building main building of just under 95,933 sf with 2 classroom wings and a capacity of 906 student stations. The wings form a central courtyard with the classrooms organized into a ‘neighborhood’ concept. The typical core spaces would include administration, media center, and multi-purpose/dining/food service. Exterior walls are tilt-up concrete with brick veneer accents to minimize maintenance. The multi-purpose/dining/kitchen area of the school will be a hurricane shelter.
The site consists of 12.52 acres of previously developed land. The existing elementary school buildings and associated infrastructure will need to be vacated, abated, and demolished prior to construction of the new facility. Separate drives are required for buses and automobile traffic.
