How We Provide Value
Utilizing an integrated approach, we offer a cohesive and collaborative team throughout project development and implementation to maximize quality results and 100% client satisfaction.
Integrated Design and Construction
Design-build construction is an integrated procurement option for capital improvement projects in which a single entity, working under one contract, performs the project’s design and construction. Because there is only one contract, the risk of messy renovations is diminished, as the design-builder is solely responsible for the project. Benefits include reduced owner risk, high-quality outcomes, on-time completion, and cost efficiencies.
Flexible Funding Approach
Performance contracting is a flexible funding mechanism that allows Georgia K-12 schools to implement facility improvements and address deferred maintenance by using energy savings to pay for the improvements. As a result, no upfront capital is required, as the projects are financed and repaid with guaranteed energy and efficiency savings.
As a leader in design and construction, we understand that educational programming precedes design. As a result, we employ experienced educational planners as core design team members. They work with our clients and design team to examine needs, growth capacity, current infrastructure, learning environment, safety, accessibility, curricular enhancement, technology, site traffic flow, and space needs for special education offerings.
Before beginning an infrastructure-related renovation project, the first critical step is to conduct a preliminary facility condition and energy assessment to identify how facilities are currently operating, identify issues, and provide a blueprint for future improvements. Once the evaluation is completed, clients have a defined roadmap for planning renovation projects. If you choose to proceed with a project, our team will design and construct your project from start to finish.
Solar Power Solutions
Our in-house solar team of professional engineers and project managers comprehensively ensures solar solutions are designed to meet clients’ long-range energy master plans and needs. Our team proactively provides holistic, right-sized, integrated design solutions and performance monitoring and reporting throughout the process.
Energy Leadership Programs
Energy Leadership is a cash-flow positive energy conservation program designed to fund facility needs from current energy expenditures with sustainability in mind. The behavior-based program yields significant energy savings as a tangible and immediate reward. The program is designed to engage student leaders and staff to help conserve energy.
"No matter who we call at Performance Services, there is an immediate response and they take care of what we need. I suppose we could have gotten a good product from a number of different companies, but I don't think we would have the level of client satisfaction with any other company. Our board feels very strongly about Performance Services, the quality of the product, and their people."
