School Matters: Educational Facility Construction

Expectations are high for schools. And while that largely depends on the teachers, administrators, students, and families who make up a school community, the structure itself can also make a significant impact. It takes experience, commitment, passion, and the teamwork we learned back when we were in the classroom to get everyone on the same page and up to speed on the latest trends. 
From the actual school buildings themselves to the facilities and athletic complexes that surround them, at CBI, we have built a little bit of everything related to education. High schools, middle schools, university facilities and more, we have gone back to the classroom time and time again. Just like in our other areas of focus, our educational facility construction is on time, on-budget and built to last. 
Facilities for newly founded Schools
·       Serious judgment must take place regarding the educational proposal we wish to apply. We must take advantage of the opportunity to innovate in the educational aspects of the new facilities. The process requires time. 
·       The type of architecture depends on the educational project. It is not just a matter of reproducing the traditional school in a new building. 
·       It is fundamental that before we begin any construction project, we have a clear educational project in mind. 
Building new facilities for an existing school
·       A second possible scenario is for an existing school to move to a new location. In this case, the new facilities must be built from scratch in keeping with the Educational Project of a school that has a sustained tradition.
Reconstruction/ renovation of existing facilities
Things to keep in mind: 
·       The age of the existing school facilities
·       How safe they are; whether they can be adapted to meet new educational demands
·       Whether the school can grow in its existing location
·       An evaluation of the terrain and the quality of construction
·       Problems with the infrastructure
·       The possible loss of competitiveness rejected by a continuous decrease in student registrations
·       The opportunity to shift to a co ed system, if this has not already taken place, in which case new spaces will be needed 
We must also consider if the school can function while construction is going on. Is it worth remodeling/rebuilding our facilities, or is it better and/or possible to build new facilities from scratch?
It is not easy to detail all the elements to be taken into consideration for new educational buildings. At CBI, we understand the important role budget and schedule play in the education industry.
