Monroe County Plantation Key School/ New phased two-story cast in place K-8 school/ 102,000 GSF
This new K-8 replacement school provides State-of-the-Art 21st Century Learning Environment for the community. This 102,000 GSF, 660 student
facility is a two-story, cast-in-place structure housing classrooms, administration, gymnasium, media center, and cafetorium on an occupied 11-
acre coastal site. The school features the latest in flexible learning spaces, technology, and security. The facility is hardened to withstand Category
5 windloads. Key specialized labs include an art lab, science on a sphere lab, think tank (computer lab), CNN/news/videotaping lab, oceanography lab and a cooking lab while maintaining all available green energy options.
Construction was phased to allow use of the existing structures for continued school operations during construction. The existing school buildings were demolished once the new school construction was complete to allow for
redevelopment of the site, which included new athletic fields, new parking facilities, new ball fields, new basketball and tennis courts, new Physical Education/Gynasium structure, two new playgrounds, a tiered-seating outdoor
performance amphitheater and utility relocations and tie-ins.
