Planning For An Educational Building Project
Are you working on building a new educational facility? Before you begin building, and sometimes before you even settle on a location, you need to create an excellent master plan. The Neenan Company team has helped to build more than 120 educational facilities, and we are experts at planning out a project, thanks to our unique take on the process called Archistruction™. Through this unique process, we work directly with you, the owner, to ensure that we are meeting your needs and exceeding your expectations so that you can have a facility that you will enjoy using for many years to come. To learn more about Archistruction™ and Neenan’s process for planning and preconstruction, keep reading today’s post or get in touch with our teams today! We always love hearing about your ideas and making your dreams into a reality.
Throughout the planning process, The Neenan Company can provide a wide range of benefits, including:
- Finding a building site for your school
- Assessing your current facility to evaluate your needs
- Assessing a new facility to see if it will meet your needs
- Forming a master plan for your education build
- Assisting with city entitlements
- And much more
No matter where you are at in your planning process, the team at Neenan can be a huge asset to you. Oftentimes, clients will come to us with simply a vague idea for a project, and we are happy to step in to build a fully thought out plan around that idea. However, if you have a pretty good base plan laid out already, we are happy to work within that plan and execute on your goals that are already in place.
Grant Application Assistance
Since 2008 when the BEST Grant (Building Excellent Schools Today) became available, schools in Colorado have been able to take advantage of the support it provides. This program, created by the Colorado Department of Education, is able to provide annual funding with competitive grants to school districts, charter schools, institute charter schools, boards of cooperative educational services, and the Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind. The Neenan Company has extensive experience working with facilities to receive some of the BEST benefits for new schools or renovations of existing facilities.

Our team wants to always provide you with the highest quality work possible. One of the ways that we do this is to partner with you throughout the whole planning process. We will schedule regular meetings to discuss your visions, plan out your building, and provide project budgets and timelines. In many companies, they don’t ask for much input from you beyond the original scope of work, but we want your feedback all the way through the process! Our goal is not to get rich quick, but rather to help you create an educational building that you are proud of and can enjoy every single day.
In our preconstruction phase, we will carefully discuss target costing with you. This process involves measuring out timelines and budgets, as well as comparing various materials and options for the final build phase. Through target costing, we will be able to provide you with accurate and up-to-date costs and solutions on a regular basis to ensure that we are meeting all of your expectations.
