This pioneering delivery approach is the first of its kind for a U.S. public school system, and it will provide five new middle schools and one K-8 school while cutting delivery time in half, reducing construction costs, and reducing preventative maintenance over the life of the schools. Compared to a traditional construction procurement model, this approach will save approximately $174 million in deferred maintenance and construction costs. Following commercial and financial close, PGCPS and project team together announced the creation of a $1 million endowed fund supporting scholarships, student internships, mentoring opportunities and apprenticeships valued at $4.7 million. Other community benefits include the guaranteed procurement of at least 30 percent of total eligible costs of the program to minority-owned businesses, community-based enterprises, and community-based small businesses. “We are so proud to be partners with PGCPS on this muchneeded development project, and of the additional benefits for the community including apprenticeships, scholarships, significant cost savings over traditional procurement, and guaranteed work opportunities for local and diverse businesses,” said Mac Bell, Managing Director, Infrastructure Investments, Fengate.
