Kicking off #NationalBacktoSchool Month, we’re sharing a Sneak Peek of the brand new Orange County Public Schools Lake Buena Vista High School. We were joined yesterday by the OCPS School District, Facilities Department, Leadership, local community and our Architect SchenkelShultz Architecture, an integral part in this new project. This new 350,000 SF High School is a multi-story prototype consisting of 10 buildings on a 50-acre site. The facility includes classrooms, science labs, art, band, dance, vocational labs, culinary labs, and athletic facilities. We are honored to continue building and supporting the Orange County, Florida Government community and education system and look forward to having our doors opened for the students and staff in one short week!

In honor of National Friendship Day, we take a moment to recognize Best Buddies Florida, an organization that is truly life changing.
Best Buddies International is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending the social, physical and economic isolation for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). They create opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, leadership development and inclusive living. Pirtle is proud to be the first Best Buddies Corporate Citizen of Broward County and currently has 10 employees volunteering with Best Buddies. In addition to our direct volunteer work, Pirtle has raised over $10,000 for Best Buddies. COVID has made it challenging to socialize, however our Pirtle Buddies have continued mentoring through virtual meet ups.
If you’d like to become a Buddy or would like to help support the Best Buddies program, visit www.bestbuddies.org/ for more information.

For our third #NationalParksandRec Month highlight, we are looking back on the multi-purpose athletic complex and joint-use facility for Coral Glades High School and the City of Coral Springs, Florida Government. The complex included high school baseball, softball, soccer and football fields along with a picnic pavilion, concession building and dugouts. An ideal place to get out and enjoy our local parks!
In honor of National Parks Month, the second project we want to highlight is Doral Glade Park and it’s unique sustainable construction. The 25-acre park is the City’s first environmental and sustainable park having received Two Green Globes for meeting strict energy efficiency goals. In addition to preserving native plants and providing a unique habitat for the local flora and fauna, this new park features a 2,400 SF Nature Center and a 6,000 SF multipurpose Community Center. As you walk in to the facility there is a carefully curated interactive Nature Center that showcases the history behind the concept and construction of this recreational space for the community through interactive exhibits about the Everglades and other South Florida ecosystems. The park is also equipped with an outdoor amphitheater, tennis and basketball courts, a lake with an ADA dock for kayaking, playgrounds, a fishing pier, and a beautiful boardwalk through the preserved wetlands area to observe the wildlife.
