Designed and constructed in three phases, this shared campus provides one of the most comprehensive career and technical schools in Florida. All buildings on the 75-acre campus were designed to be energy efficient, incorporate 21st century technology and provide students with training and education opportunities for their future careers.
The central energy plant houses the chilled-water loop, the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system for the entire campus. The cooling plant has three 400-ton air cooled screw chillers that support a thermal energy storage system which shifts 1,325 peak ton-hours, reducing overall cooling expenses, in addition to earning a rebate of more than $630,000 from a utility company and high praise from School Board staff.
