Monroe County School District Stanley Switlik Elementary School
This project encompassed the partial replacement and renovations to an existing school, reconfigured/added parking areas , two large baseball fields, an observation platform (dock) out over the water, as well as the addition of a bus maintenance facility totaling 101,971 SF. The previous two story administration building was demolished and replaced by two buildings, a single story administration building and a two story classroom building. Another existing two story classroom building and the cafeteria building were also renovated.
The new construction was tilt wall panels with standing seam and metal roofs, impact windows and state of the art audio/visual systems in each classroom utilizing interactive boards and teaching walls. The site was raised five feet above current conditions to address storm surge and potential flooding issues in the Florida Keys. The existing school remained occupied and operational during construction that required a multi-phased sequence, one in which an entire temporary campus was built.
