About the Project

Duval Charter School, after completing two additional schools within a five-mile radius of this location, were still experiencing over-capacity waiting lists for new enrollment. This Southside parcel was determined a suitable site within a focused demographic for new an additional parental choice for public education. Complicating maters, this site was currently in receivership with a number of parcels and tied up in the State court system. Working closely with local attorneys, city officials, and the recorded receivership appointee, Summit was able to separate this parcel from the total package and purchase it at a court approved price. In essence of time, all city approvals and building permit submittals were pursued parallel while obtaining the courts permission to purchase the site. Once closed and permitted, an existing retention pond was relocated on the property providing the required continuous acreage for a school design. Including the intense site redesign the total construction time from property closing to certificate of occupancy for this 68,500sf K-8 Charter School project was six months. Duval Charter School at Southside was built for Charter Schools USA
