Nocatee, Fla. – CPPI completed the construction of St. Johns County Schools’ new Palm Valley Academy on August 3rd, just in time to get teachers and students moved in for the upcoming school year. The new K-8 school in Nocatee, Florida is approximately 200,000 square feet and sits on 30 acres of land.
Features of Palm Valley Academy include a media center with state-of-the-art equipment and a virtual lab, common areas, whiteboard tables, and a TV production room. Three-story tilt wall construction was used in the building process. The school was designed by Harvard Jolly Architects and engineered by Johnson, Levinson, Ragan, Davila, Inc.
