Before We Build Anything, We Build Relationships.
A total focus on client needs is the key to our mutual success. That’s why we commit time to get to know individual clients and their unique needs. We gain a deep understanding of aspirations and facility challenges. We only put forward design solutions focused on optimizing the learning and working environments. We provide an integrated design and delivery approach that includes programming, comprehensive facilities studies, architecture and engineering design, project management, building controls, and performance assurance.
Outcome Focused Benefits
We work with clients to find solutions to real facility challenges. Each project starts with the end goal in mind, with the client’s desired outcome guiding our work. Our integrated design and construction approach provides best-value projects with optimized indoor environments and significant energy and operational savings. Performance Services is unique in providing speed of delivery and performance guarantees on every project. We offer turnkey solutions through energy savings performance contracts (ESPCs) to improve facilities and address deferred maintenance. And we offer design-build construction services to complete new construction and renovation projects for public owners.

How We Do It
Performance Services provides both design and construction focused on quality results. We perform essential functions, including design, project management, optimization, and performance assurance work, rather than relying on subcontractors for these services. We engage local community members whenever possible and utilize a collaborative approach throughout project development and installation. We leverage team relationships, providing a collaborative and cohesive approach throughout project development and implementation to maximize quality results and client satisfaction.
How We're Different
How We Provide Value
Before beginning an infrastructure-related renovation project, the first key step is to conduct a preliminary facility condition and energy assessment to identify how facilities are currently operating, identify potential issues, and provide a blueprint for future improvements. Once the assessment is completed, our clients have a thorough roadmap for planning their renovation projects. If they choose to proceed with a project, our integrated team can help implement it from start to finish.
Turnkey Energy Solutions with Energy Savings Performance Contracts
Performance contracting is an alternative financing method to enable efficiency upgrades such as lighting, chillers, boilers, water systems, and renewable energy systems using a budget-neutral and cashflow-positive approach. Energy savings performance contracts are available to K-12 school districts and other Arkansas local governments. Our local Arkansas team offers an excellent opportunity to address deferred maintenance with performance guarantees.
As a leader in design and construction, we understand that programming precedes design. As a result, we employ educational planners as core design team members. They work with our clients and design team to examine educational needs, growth capacity, current infrastructure, learning environment, safety, accessibility, curricular enhancement, technology, site traffic flow, and space needs for special education offerings.
Design-build construction is an integrated delivery model for infrastructure improvement projects for either new construction or renovations in which a single entity, working under one contract, performs both the design and construction of the project. Because there is only one contract, the design-builder sees the project from the initial design concept to construction completion, carrying single-source accountability. Benefits of this approach include reduced owner risk, higher quality, quicker delivery, and cost efficiencies.
Energy Leadership Program
Energy Leadership is a cash-flow positive energy conservation program designed to fund facility needs from current energy expenditures with sustainability in mind. The program is simple to implement and yields significant energy savings as a tangible and immediate reward. The program is designed to engage student leaders and staff meaningfully and collaboratively to help conserve energy.
Solar Power Solutions
Solar power can save Arkansas schools and cities significant money while providing educational and environmental benefits. Schools can substantially reduce utility bill costs, and solar power can result in positive cash flow in the first year of operation, depending on the project’s financing method.
"Our District and City treasure Little Rock historic school buildings. Performance Services was the right company to modernize the heating and cooling systems at Little Rock Central High School. Performance Services made sure we had all systems operational on the first day of class. Their people and project management make a difference."
