How do you build a new high school with 12 buildings without disrupting classes and endangering students who are attending school on the same campus?
With intense coordination and targeted construction phasing.
Over a four year period that ended in December 2014, the Venice High School in Venice, Florida underwent a dramatic $81.2 million transformation.
The 400,000-square-foot Green Building Initiative project included the campus plant, main classroom building and a renovation of the existing media building into a new cafeteria with covered exterior dining. The second phase included the administration building, performing arts and music building, gymnasium, lockers, JROTC and culinary arts building, concession, ticket booth and entry enhancements to the football stadium, and modifications to the existing gymnasium.
Delivery windows for rented equipment and building material was 8:30-9:30 a.m. each school day – before the buses and the students arrived on campus. Timing was critical and missed delivery windows meant operational delays.
Safety for students, staff and faculty, as well as the construction workers and contractors was paramount. Anyone entering the job site was required to wear a hardhat, vest and glasses, as well as safety boots. There were no exceptions.
Contractors on site rented a large variety of equipment from small pumps & hammers to forklifts and long reach excavators. Renting the right equipment for the job paid off. The project was completed on time, and the contractor received industry recognition for quality and complexity of the work.
