The Smith Center is the multi-purpose gymnasium building at the
Jacksonville Country Day School in Jacksonville, Florida. The Center
includes a gymnasium, locker rooms, coach's office, snack bar, tutoring
rooms, Language Arts classroom, dance/karate studios, multi-purpose
meeting rooms, and outdoor restrooms for the adjacent swimming pool.
Extensive relocation of the existing underground utilities prior to the
commencement of the building construction was needed. This included
excavation of a new large storm retention pond and the filling in of two
existing storm retention ponds and associated storm piping.
Additionally, new water and sanitary sewer piping was installed for the
building. A new electrical transformer was installed which required new
underground electrical service and the demolition of the existing
Sauer Incorporated carefully planned the phasing of the construction due
to the location of the new building within the campus as the campus was
fully operational at all times during construction. Temporary roads were
placed and the entire construction area was fenced in to maintain a
separation between school activities and construction activities.
Completed in August 2012, the Smith Center was ready for the students
when the new school year began.
