Ruffin Rhodes

New Smyrna Beach, FL and Orlando, FL --- Rhodes+Brito Architects in Orlando was selected to design a brand new Chisholm Elementary, replacing the original building erected in the 1940s on Ronnoc Lane off of Wayne Ave. and Hwy. A1A in New Smyrna Beach. 

Ruffin Rhodes, co-founder and partner at Rhodes+Brito Architects, said his firm is currently underway with the planning and design of the new 85,000 square foot school to accommodate 750 students, implementing 21st century design concepts that enhance the learning experience and student interaction.

The extra one-half cent sales tax in Volusia County finally raised enough funds to cover the much needed project that will revitalize the entire neighborhood of this historic Westside District of New Smyrna Beach, according to Rhodes.

The design phase will be completed by May of 2018 and construction, at an estimated cost of $17 million, will get underway in June of next year.
