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.

In April 2022, Fengate announced financial close on the acquisition of a significant portfolio of highquality wireless communications towers, located in nine states across the United States, from Floridabased TowerCom, LLC (TowerCom). This acquisition builds on the multi-year partnership between Fengate and TowerCom launched in September 2020 to support the development and construction of new towers as well as Fengate’s acquisition of 42 towers from Municipal Communications II in September 2021. TowerCom, a leading communications tower developer and owner focused on some of the fastest-growing wireless markets in the United States, will continue to manage the newly acquired portfolio of towers on Fengate’s behalf.

“We are excited about this new portfolio of geographically diverse and highly strategic assets as they service national carrier tenants and are in zoning and site acquisition environments that would be difficult to replicate,” comments Andrew Cogan, Managing Director and Head of Infrastructure Investments, Fengate. “This transaction builds on our strong and productive relationship with TowerCom, a best-in-class partner, and on Fengate’s successful track record with critical infrastructure across North America including the rapidly evolving and highly attractive wireless industry.”
