In 1997, Orange County Public Schools in Orlando, Florida, committed to one of the most ambitious public works projects in its history, allocating millions of dollars to build new schools, and repair, upgrade and expand existing facilities. Since then, the district has spent more than $250 million to correct life safety deficiencies at schools throughout the county, and to eliminate portable and modular classrooms, many of which leak and shift when
challenged with inclement weather. The scope of the program also includes full renovation of older schools and construction of new facilities.
URS serves as program manager for the program's new school construction component, having been responsible for opening more than 40 new schools, and also assists with managing renovation projects. URS is also assisting with the master plan that runs through 2013, which includes more than 250 projects.
