Suffolk recently completed construction of the School District of Lee County’s newest school, Gateway High School.  

Located at near the intersection of State Road 82 and Griffin Drive, the three-story Gateway High School sits on 55.6 acres, totals approximately 300,000 square feet and will accommodate more than 2,000 students.

Suffolk provided preconstruction and construction management services for the project. Construction began in September 2019.

In addition to Cambridge AICE (Advanced International Certificate of Education), Advanced Placement and AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) curriculum options, students can sign up for one of the school’s four career academies that include programs that offer job training for cyber security, the medical field, veterinarian services and carpentry. In addition to classrooms, academies and administrative areas, the school includes a media center, gymnasium, cafeteria, weight room, locker rooms, field house and theater.

As part of the extensive preconstruction process, Suffolk implemented a highly successful 3D modeling effort alongside the District, design team, and key trade partners.

Suffolk previously worked with the Lee County School District on multiple projects including the rebuild of Dunbar High School which consisted of demolition of approximately 130,000 square feet of existing structure on the campus, as well as 170,000 square feet of new construction. Two existing buildings on campus also received extensive renovations.
