Good High School Design Needs Know-How.
Our holistic approach to designing schools and learning environments takes center stage in our approach to high school design in Texas.
Instead of taking an in-the-box approach that would treat each student the same, we work with high schools to design buildings that allow for flexibility while still keeping an eye toward individualized student learning and teaching styles.
What Cadco does differently creates better high schools.
We believe in real partnership. That means that the buck has to stop with the decision-makers. That's why all of our meetings are led by a team leader of CADCO. Evey meeting with the community, every meeting with the district, and even all of our site meetings are lead by someone with real, first-hand knowledge and experience designing High Schools.
We do this so that the districts we work with know that what happens in these meetings goes.
It's the little things
A small but substantial difference that we believe more invests us in our projects is that we do not charge for site meetings.
From pre-bond to project completion, our team leader travel is part of the investment we believe in making with our partner districts.
If we have a letter of agreement with your district before the bond we do not charge anything if the bond fails. We see this as a cost of doing business and want you to know that we believe it's important to show proof of our personal investment in your project.
When selected by a district to build or modify a high school, we will work directly with the Superintendent, Board of Trustees, Principal, or a committee selected by the board to investigate what the needs and wants are for the district and a general estimate of the cost required to complete the project. CADCO will take the information gathered from these meetings and create a general footprint or direction and incorporate them into renderings, preliminary plans, and possible options of phasing or cost savings depending on the number of buildings requested.
Once a general consensus for direction is agreed upon by the district we will host community meetings describing the design and plan to the public to ensure the voters know what they are voting on.
The Details are important
Detailed High School Planning
After bond passage, our team begins meeting with local stakeholders in your community to develop the final plan for your high school. We take exhaustive community and district input and interview existing conditions to really get a granular understanding of what the needs and wants are for the district so that we can develop the best plan options for your budget.
We work to ensure that your is the best it can be by being upfront and honest through the entire progression. Additionally, we help you understand the process so your district makes the most out of your bond funds. Because we want your project to be a success.
We act in your best interest at all times.
During construction and before we work as the owner's representative when communicating with the contractor, we work in the district's best interests at all times.
We take concrete steps to ensure that your district, administration, educators, and students will love and benefit from our high school design in Texas from start to after completion.
