Originally constructed in 1925, Osceola Middle School is located on a 10.97-acre campus in the heart of downtown Ocala. The Marion County Public School District retained Scorpio as the Construction Manager to add standalone dining and kitchen space to service the Middle School which has been sharing a cafeteria with the co-located Eighth Street Elementary School for decades. Expansion options are physically limited and therefore require dedicated efforts to strategically construct a new building of approximately 12,000 sq. ft. within the historic campus.
The new construction will include a kitchen, dining area, serving location and queuing, restrooms, storage, a teacher’s lounge, and an outdoor covered eating area. Construction efforts will also include site work, paving, and utility changes as necessary to service the new cafeteria. Site work includes modifications and/or construction of hardscapes and storm drainage systems.
