Students planning to attend Lehigh Acres Middle school in the fall of 2021 will start their school year in a brand-new facility. The campus stretches over 42.5-acres and is being constructed east of Homestead on Sunrise Drive to help alleviate capacity issues for the Lee County School District’s East Zone.
In lieu of a large ground breaking ceremony, the Lee County School District and a limited group of team members involved with the project, recently held a topping off ceremony where they were able to sign one of the final support beams needed to complete the central energy building and write well wishes to the students.
As the civil engineer, our team assisted with the overall site design for the complex, which included a stormwater management plan, environmental assessments, utility infrastructure, roadway and parking areas, and permitting. Working closely with RG Architects, Lee County School District staff, construction manager OAK, and the rest of the design team, we are making sure the school is on track to be ready for students next fall.
It’s a privilege to be part of this project, knowing the Lee County School District is working to refine and improve the educational amenities to better prepare our children for the future.
