Charlotte High School
Punta Gorda, FL
Charlotte County School Board | 392,707 SF | 2010
When Charlotte High School sustained major damage from Hurricane Charley in 2004, school officials wanted to urgently provide a sense of normalcy in the student's schedules. Harvard Jolly was commissioned immediately to begin assembling a modular campus that consisted of 80 portable classrooms for the school's 2,100 students.
During the recovery process, the majority of the high school campus had to be demolished due to the extensive hurricane damage. Despite sustaining severe damage, the historic main building that was built in 1926 was reconstructed and preserved in order for it to remain on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. The design integrated new construction with the existing buildings to provide a seamless and unified design..
The school's award winning athletic facilities rival those of many college campuses. A new field house was constructed and contains a 5,000 square foot weight room, locker rooms, coaches' offices, and laundry facilities. The project also added an auxiliary gymnasium, physical education locker rooms, and wrestling room on the main campus.
Charlotte High School incorporates several sustainable features. The design resulted in reduced water consumption and improved indoor air quality. Photovoltaic panels generate electricity and double as walkway canopies, and thermal solar panels are used to create hot water for the locker rooms and kitchen.
Charlotte High School is the first full campus LEED Gold Certified public high school in the Southeastern United States.
