The Challenge

The Lee County School Board, responding to a boom in population in the early 2000s, and its respective education needs, evaluated several of the county locations for the highest need to fill educational resources. New facilities were fast-tracked to be built in several locations, and inside the River Hall Subdivision in Lee County, a 20 acre site was deemed as an ideal setting for a necessary elementary school, with a 17 million dollar budget. Because the school was chosen to be built within an already existing subdivision, traffic engineering was paramount to the success of the site plan.

The Solution & Result

Comprehensive Site Planning, Zoning, and Construction Observation/Inspections

In 2005, with pressure to fast-track the newly selected elementary school construction projects, the Lee County School Board contacted Reynolds, Smith and Hills, Inc to assist in bringing this project to completion, who in turn selected Exceptional Engineering Inc. for its prior knowledge and ability to expedite site plan and permitting, specifically with experience in school board related projects.

Knowing that time was of the essence, the Exceptional Engineering Project Management team, set out immediately to complete the needed site design of the 122,244 sf school building situated on the 20-acre location. Additionally, EEI undertook the traffic engineering, utility design, drainage design, roadway improvements design, site permitting through Lee County, Lee County Utility Permitting, Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) Sewer Permitting, Lee County Department of Health (LCDOH) potable water permitting, and South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) ERP permitting. Construction observations of the final elementary school were accomplished on time in 2006. The families of the River Hall Subdivision and its surrounding areas, now have access to a beautiful state-of-the-art educational facility.
