Provided leadership in assisting the District in developing a long range master facilities plan that addressed aging facilities, increasing enrollment, and flexible learning spaces. Development of the long range plan identified cost impacts too great for the community to absorb at once. Consequently, a multi-referendum approach was developed. VJS provided community engagement and public information support throughout multiple referendum campaigns as part of the fulfillment of the master plan. VJS also developed a multi-sequenced schedule to minimize the interruptions and best utilize the restricted sites. Multiple projects occurred simultaneously within aggressive schedule parameters.

“Knowledge is power but mastery can only be achieved through execution. VJS' mastery became evident from day one during the planning and budgeting of the projects. Their team members truly led the entire project team at the early stages by providing accurate budgets, cost reduction and value enhancing concepts, scheduling and phasing solutions and Building Information Modeling coordination.”
