GATES Successfully Completes Dual School Project

GATES has successfully completed the construction of Challenger Middle School and Patriot Elementary School located on the same 30 acre site in Cape Coral.  With a combined square footage of 284,618, the schools were constructed simultaneously in just 13 months.  The schools were delivered to the Lee County School District under budget and ahead of schedule for the 2007/2008 school year.  

Although both of these prototype schools have been built a number of times in the District, the GATES built schools have been selected as the “District Standard” due to the excellence and quality product that GATES delivered.

Challenger Middle School was designed by BRPH Architects while Patriot Elementary School was designed by RS&H Architects.
