Plante Moran Realpoint assists school district with pre-bond planning and subsequent capital improvements
Lincoln Consolidated Schools (LCS) in Ypsilanti, Michigan, sought pre-bond planning services for an upcoming election.
LCS engaged Plante Moran Realpoint (PMR), formerly Plante Moran Cresa, to conduct a facility condition analysis that determined the critical needs for the District’s nine facilities, including the high school, the middle school, four elementary schools, an alternative education facility, a transportation building, and a maintenance facility.
Working with the school board, superintendent, and community, PMR helped the District identify its needs and assisted in the preparation of a $35 million bond proposal that passed on the May 2010 ballot.
PMR then addressed the totality of LCS’s identified needs by acting as an owner’s representative to the District as it addressed needs across its 876,000 square feet of facilities. Our team oversaw the design and construction supported by the bond — all within tight budgetary and schedule guidelines.
