Winthrop Charter School I & II

Winthrop Charter School I & II

Winthrop Charter School Phase I is a two-story, 50,000 square foot Charter School serving 860 Kindergarten through 8th grade students in Hillsborough County. Mr. Smith worked with the local land developer to integrate the school and its amenities seamlessly into the overall master plan for the Winthrop Town Center.

Through a cohesive development, design and construction approach, Mr. Smith was able to fast-track the design and permitting process starting construction early 2010. Mr. Smith was also responsible for the Budget and Schedule development ensuring the project was delivered on time and within budget.  This project also achieved other key goals of open communication and no change orders.

Phase 2 of the Winthrop Charter School, a concrete tilt constructed school, was slated to have 18 classrooms, art and music labs, and a multi-purpose room for dining, assembly, pick-up, and drop-off.

The construction schedule was tight, and the work took place while the nearby sister school was full of children, teachers, and parents.

Because of this, an emphasis on communication, quality, and safety was more important than ever. The team worked closely with the sister school’s principal to ensure students stayed safe and to find ways to make it easy for parents to drop off and pick up their kids. Weekly meetings with the school staff helped to head off conflicts and minimize disturbances to the existing school. Five months later a beautiful new school was ready to go, right on time.
