Gilbane has been providing construction management at-risk services to the School District of Osceola County for more than 18 years.
a new STate-of-the-art educational campus offers the latest technology
Gilbane is serving as construction manager at-risk for construction of a new, greenfield high school. The scope of work includes the construction of a 2,500- to 3,000-student station campus on an approximately 75-acre site. The building construction will consist of concrete tilt wall panels, structural steel structure, low-slope flat and pitched standing seam roofs.
The new high school is designed to create a dynamic and collaborative 21st century learning environment with the flexibility to adapt to the current and future educational needs of the school district. With a heavy emphasis on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math), as well as career and technical education programs such as robotics, biomedical engineering, health sciences, cyber security, and alternative energy, the new campus will provide the foundation for students to move toward careers in high-wage market sectors.
The new high school campus will include classroom buildings, an active learning media center, gymnasium, administration building, performing arts center, music suite, and cafeteria with a possible shared kitchen for a future middle school. Technology will be ubiquitous throughout the entire campus. In addition to the indoor learning environments, the campus includes outdoor learning features such as demonstration photovoltaic panels, learning gardens, and outdoor classroom spaces to promote opportunities for learning to happen everywhere. Also included on site will be football and baseball/softball fields, outdoor basketball/tennis courts, track, practice fields and parking surfaces.
Gilbane’s early coordination meetings with the design team, owner and local utility provider led to significant savings and prevented delays to the construction schedule. Recognizing that the original placement of the utility transformers along the road would result in added cost the team suggested moving the transformers as close to the gear as possible resulting in over $100,000 of cost savings.
