The Challenge

The Charlotte County School Board had decided in the early 2000s, to expand its school facilities but with a new benchmark to reflect forward environmental thinking for the preservation of Florida’s unique ecosystem. They decided to pursue all their future construction of several schools with LEED certification, the standard in green building certification programs used worldwide.

In 2005 on Breezeswept Avenue in Charlotte County, a 10.44-acre site was chosen for the construction of an elementary school with this LEED certification. The challenge was to ensure its environmental status, in a timely fashion under the 23 million dollar budget.

The Solution & Result

Comprehensive Site Planning, Site Design, and Construction Observation/Inspections

Exceptional Engineering’s Project Management team began the site design for the 151.936 sf elementary school building on the 10.44-acre site. To complete their comprehensive work, the team was also responsible for the surveying, traffic engineering, utility design, drainage design, Charlotte County Utility Permitting, Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) Sewer Permitting, Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) potable water permitting, South West Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) ERP permitting, and most importantly the LEED filing for civil sections. In 2007, construction observations of the elementary school and its campus were finalized.

LEED certification was awarded upon completion. One of the first Charlotte county schools as LEED-certified, the Charlotte County School Board can proudly showcase the setting of its new standards at a higher and greener bar for its students.
