Commercial Team Celebrates Topping Out of Middle School in Lake Nona


Sanford, FL – October 18, 2016 – Wharton-Smith’s commercial team recently celebrated the topping out of a new middle school for the Lake Nona community. Subcontractors were treated to a BBQ feast and prizes were given in appreciation for their hard work. As workers entered the building they received a t-shirt with a rendering of the school on the back and the words, “Building the future with TEAM work!”

Project Manager Larry Sease opened the celebration, “We’ve reached an important milestone and I want to thank all of you for your hard work,” he said. “This new school will provide yet another state-of-the-art facility for the community and for Orange County Public Schools.”

The official name and a mascot for the new school are on hold until the project is finished. For now, it’s referred to as Site-52-M-SE-2 Relief Middle School. The three-story prototype school is being built to accommodate overcrowding due to rapid population growth in the area. The $26.5 million project will be completed in time for the 2017-2018 school year.
