Pinellas Technical High School Construction Underway
JE Dunn Construction is transforming a career and technical education center built 57 years ago into the first full-time technical high school for Pinellas County Schools in Florida.
The $13.2-million project establishing the Pinellas Technical High School at Seminole involves constructing a 34,335-square-foot, two-story building with classrooms, administrative offices and kitchen and cafeteria areas; renovating 26,250-square-foot of existing classroom and administration building; and making site improvements to the 42-acre campus, established in 1961.
The new “Tech High” will accommodate enrollment growth and, with its new full-day schedule of classes, augment the curriculum to include the full spectrum of courses students need to graduate from high school as well as honors and advanced placement classes. The school’s technical offerings will be: building trades and construction design technology, commercial and digital arts, electricity, nursing, veterinary assisting, and game or simulation programming.
The new facility—which will replace the Career Academies of Seminole—is scheduled to open August 2018.
