Valencia Building 10
1800 S. Kirkman Road, Orlando, FL 32811
The Valencia College Building 10 represented an important step in Valencia’s goal of offering a superlative education experience to both Florida residents and people from across the world. It is a three- story building with 60,000 square feet of advanced classrooms, offices and study space. McCree also integrated a new data center into the building’s design as well as smart boards, adjustable tie-ins for tablets and computers, and Wi-Fi. Prior to construction, McCree was able to save the college nearly a half-million dollars by strongly suggesting an updated geotechnical report which disproved prior reports of an existing sinkhole in the area. In Addition, McCree was able to utilize a pre-cast rigid wall panel system, a value engineering tool which saved the school both time and money. We were also able to bring our considerable experience organizing and managing Owner Direct Purchasing (ODP) programs to save Valencia $213,674 off their final budget. Building 10 received a Level 3 Green Globes certification, and this project was completed on time, on budget, and with exceptional quality.
