During a record-setting summer, Plante Moran Cresa helped communities improve school facilities at 24 districts across the state of Michigan.

With school now in full swing, Plante Moran Cresa is happy to celebrate the end of a successful K-12 school summer construction season — one that completed a record-high amount of construction.

As owner’s representatives, our K-12 team oversaw approximately $240 million in construction project value over a 11-week period this summer. These projects were aimed at improving the educational environments for more than 185,000 students across 24 districts.

This marks the most successful summer for our K-12 capital projects team in Plante Moran Cresa’s 25-year history. This record-breaking summer comes following Plante Moran Cresa’s involvement in the strategic planning, treasury applications, and community informational campaigns for two bond proposals in the May 2022 election cycle, totaling more than $190 million.

Thank you to all the school districts who have made us a part of their teams as they invest in their facilities. We couldn’t be prouder of the positive impact these projects will have on hundreds of thousands of students and communities.

As happy as we are to see our collective hard work turn our clients’ visions into reality, we know this success stems from the teamwork of the large group of players collaborating within each community: school board members, school administrators and faculty, community members, architectural firms, construction managers, trades, and others. We’d like to give a warm thank you to each of these individuals for their dedication to improving the educational environment of our schools.

Plante Moran Cresa has helped many districts plan for and execute their capital projects, and we would be glad to help yours as well. Let’s make next summer a success for your district — contact us today.
