Els' Center of Excellence--State-of-the-Art Education Center for Autism in Jupiter, Florida
March 8, 2013--Pro golfer Ernie Els and his foundation plan to build a 100,000 sq. ft. school and resource center for children with autism in the Limestone Creek area near Jupiter.
The $30 million project will be an "epicenter for autism, research, transition and treatment" and provide services for 300 students' ages 3-21 years. This will be the first charter school in Palm Beach County to offer education from first grade through high school followed by transition to adulthood.
The new facility will not only be an autism research center but it will also offer students medical treatment along with a sports complex and a swimming pool. Plans submitted to the Palm Beach County suggest that the center will be opened at the conclusion of 2014.
RGD Engineers is proud to be a part of this amazing project. It will provide the design and management of many foundational components including mechanical, electrical and plumbing designs. It is expected that this learning facility will attract international and national recognition.
