Village Oaks Elementary School

Immokalee, FL

The School District of Collier County was facing a serious overcrowding problem at nearly all schools in the district. As such, they embarked on a major capital improvement plan to resolve the problem. A large portion of this plan included converting all of the existing K-5 elementary schools to K-6 schools through remodeling/reprogramming and major addition projects, while updating and modernizing the facilities to current District standards.

At Village Oaks Elementary, Zyscovich Architects provided a full scope analysis and facility and systems assessments. The final scope of work included over 20,000 SF of new construction containing classrooms, new administration and guidance areas and a P.E. shelter. The 68,000 SF of renovation work included ADA toilet upgrades, the creation of shared teacher planning areas, and a new HVAC system with electrical upgrades.

Zyscovich Architects designed the expanded site and buildings to create a new face to the campus, to provide for a separation of age groups within the facility, and to create an exterior learning courtyard. The new campus plan is highly secure, with a high-security, main entry point located at administration. The new site plan also provides extended on-site drop-offs and expanded parking facilities.
