Our experience developing and building 22 charter schools in several states has equipped us with the networks and resources necessary to engage the best architects and contractors at the best possible rates, anywhere in the US. We are accustomed to working under the compressed schedules and tight budgets that charter schools often face, so you can rest assured that your facility will be ready for operations on the date that we commit to during the development phase (acts of nature and catastrophes permitting, of course).
During development, our construction specialists work closely with your school board and leaders, in tandem with the architects and contractors that will be designing and building your charter school facility. Together, we develop a facility that will meet your schools programming and enrollment needs, all while staying within your school’s budget. It is important to us that your input is integrated into the planning process. Of course, budgets will always determine the size and scope of your facility, but our client schools often rave about the “perks” that their HighMark facility has–perks that they often thought that they would have to do without–sports facilities, cafeterias, multi-purpose rooms, science labs, auditoriums, durable and attractive cabinetry and white-boards.
Highmark only works with reliable, established, insured, and proven builders so that once plans are completed and ground is broken all efforts are being made to deliver your school facility as quickly as possible, with the highest quality and workmanship possible.
Once your school is complete and school is in session, we are confident that you will be satisfied with the final product–a modern, efficient, functional educational facility. In fact, every school we’ve worked with so far has been so pleased with their facility they have taken the opportunity to buy the school from HighMark/ECS and to become sole owners.
