The rapidly growing Nocatee community in St. John’s County, Florida needed to expand its educational facilities to accommodate the increasing number of school aged children in the area. Palm Valley Academy is a kindergarten through 8th grade school was approved and scheduled to welcome children for the 2018-2019 school year. JAX Mechanical, a subsidiary of the Jacksonville Florida based JAX Refrigeration worked with Charles Perry Partners, Inc. (CPPI) to provide the heating, ventilation and HVAC systems for the 190,000-square-foot, tilt-panel building. The project spanned two years with a contract value of $4,337,000.
Beyond the construction, JAX Mechanical went outside the traditional scope of work to help develop coordination drawings to the benefit other subcontractors and provide the client cost-saving options at every turn. The large-scale project, while already unique to JAX Mechanical’s typical project size, was still able to be handled in-house despite delays caused by delays.

Innovations in materials, scheduling and energy cost integrations makes this project a standout example of JAX Mechanical’s construction excellence.
