This 55,000 sf elementary charter campus was awarded to Heritage Charter as a Design/Build Contract and was a new highly efficient school prototype we designed for Harmony that is being used throughout Texas. Heritage performed extensive site redesign resulting from difficulties with two adjoining land owners, City of Plano platting, etc., resulting in project cost reduction of over $2,000,000 while maintaining the fast tracked timeline.
In order to open a temporary school in the fall Heritage located a vacant, 60,000 call center nearby, negotiated a short term lease, designed and constructed a complete, temporary elementary school inside the empty call center nearby, negotiated a complete, temporary elementary school inside the empty call center in 28 days (included design, permitting and construction) and opened the school exactly on time for 550 students. It is this type of innovative effort that has resulted in long term relationships for our charter school clients
