Plante Moran Realpoint guides DeWitt Public Schools through $10 million bond program

The challenge

After a $10 million bond program passed in November of 2009, DeWitt Public Schools required the guidance of an experienced owner’s representative to help its staff and leadership manage the bond program.

The solution

The bond funds were used to make improvements across the district:

  • Renovate and upgrade seven of the district’s school buildings
  • Construct classroom additions at an elementary school, new team building, tennis courts, track, field, and concessions

The renovations involved HVAC and lighting controls, new roofs, windows, interior upgrades, site improvements, technology upgrades, and create security access controls.

PMR provided an experienced team and strong resources to assist with RFQ/RFP development, project budget and schedule development, negotiation of professional services agreements, move coordination, FF&E (furniture, fixture, and equipment) procurement, design advocacy and construction oversight, construction payment application, and close-out services.

The benefit

Throughout the course of the engagement, PMR identified approximately $800,000 worth of added projects. Our team helped the District work through each project until its successful completion.
