Oak View Middle School in Newberry, Florida is getting a major facility upgrade with a brand-new classroom building. Designed by Kail Partners Architecture & Interiors, it will be a standalone 22,000 square foot one-story classroom building.
This new building will deliver 16 new classrooms and a collaborative learning center. The building is comprised of masonry walls, metal truss roof structure, metal roofing, combination of brick, metal panels and stucco finishes over masonry wall construction and includes a fire protection sprinkler system. Site design also includes stormwater retention.
In addition, Oak View Middle School’s campus wide chiller plant and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) system will be updated.
Construction is expected to be completed in November of 2022.
The new construction was made possible through the approval of half-cent sales tax for schools, generating $22 million every year that is used for school infrastructure projects.
