Construction Progress at the New Smyrna Area Elementary School

Construction continues at the new Smyrna Area Elementary School.  Breedlove Land Planning, in collaboration with Cunningham, Forehand, Matthews, Moore Architects, incorporated many sustainable design elements in an attempt to help the project achieve LEED Gold certification.  These elements include permeable pavers, native landscaping with drip irrigation, wet detention, and buffer preservation.  In order to preserve as much of the natural buffers on site as possible, extensive walls were designed to protect trees.  Carroll Daniel Construction Company has taken the lead in the construction of the school.  Scheduled to open in August 2013, the new elementary school will be a welcomed amenity to the City of Smyrna.
