Rhodes+Brito Architects’ Transformation, New Construction at Dover Shores Elementary is Ready for 20
ORLANDO, Fla. – The Dover Shores Elementary construction and renovation project designed by Rhodes+Brito was completed in time for faculty to get ready for students entering the 2018-2019 school year.
Ruffin Rhodes, co-founder and partner at Rhodes+Brito Architects, said the project awarded by Orange County Public Schools at a cost of approximately $14.8 Million, includes one new building with new classrooms, administration offices, kitchen, multi-purpose lunchroom/stage, play fields and playground equipment and renovation of one existing building that houses Pre-K, Kindergarten, and ESE classrooms.
The elementary school, located at 1200 Gaston Foster Rd., off of S. Conway and Curry Ford Rds., is ready to accommodate more than 600 students for the fall 2018 school year.
Dover Shores students were attending a “swing school” at the former Engelwood Elementary School adjacent to the brand new Engelwood Elementary also designed by Rhodes+Brito and it was occupied by students this past 2017-2018 school year.
