[WEBINAR SERIES] School Additions and Renovations: Structuring and Navigating the Process

As students settle in, October is the best time of year to start planning summer 2018 renovations and additions. Join the National Charter Schools Institute on a webinar series running this fall and winter focused on Structuring and Navigating Facilities Renovations and Additions.

As school leaders, it is your mission to inspire and educate the next generation of lifelong learners, and an important component to that are the spaces and learning environments they experience. When it is time for an addition or renovation at your school, we are your experienced resource for navigating the process from space usage planning to construction turnover so you can focus on what you do best. After all, our mission at the Institute is to inspire, equip and support people and organizations like you who are dedicated to improving education for our kids and our country.

Taking on a renovation or an addition project is a daunting task that can easily stall out in gridlock and uncertainty with the many moving parts involved. One of the key factors to success is starting early in the fall and moving into the process with a road map of what lies ahead. Partner with our experienced charter school facilities professional Dustin Sommer and start setting your project up for success; we are here to help you!
