Now is the time to evaluate your capital improvement needs and priorities.

Get started with a facility study. We are experts in planning, design, construction, and beyond completion with performance assurance. Our local team has proven performance with high-performing energy savings school projects. Now, with design-build legislation effective January 1, 2024, we look forward to providing design-build new construction and renovation services with sole accountability for your District. 

Before we Build Anything, We Build Relationships

Focusing on client priorities and needs is the key to our mutual success. At Performance Services, we dedicate time to knowing owner aspirations and challenges. Only then do we put forward design solutions. Our team brings an integrated approach, including educational planning, design, project management, building automation controls, and performance assurance. We value long-term relationships and are in it for the long haul.

Deferred Maintenance Solutions

We work with owners to find solutions to challenging problems. Every project starts with the end in mind, with the owner’s desired outcome guiding our planning and work. We know high-performing buildings are more cost-effective to operate over time, so that’s our focus provided with performance guarantees. With our integrated approach, there are no gaps between planning, design, and construction, so the outcome is predictable. We’ll cross the finish line together, knowing you’re getting exactly what you want and need from your project.


How We Deliver

  • 01


    Performance Services believes in shaking hands, not pointing fingers. Unlike traditional approaches, where the client has to manage different contracts and contractors, all Performance Services projects have just one agreement with the owner, and we work every aspect of the project. Illinois school districts have total project control through one touch point: Performance Services. Regardless of the issue raised, we will never point fingers or shift responsibility. We will work until the issue is resolved. That’s how we do things.

  • 02


    Our integrated design and construction process includes a holistic needs assessment, detailed programming, architecture, engineering, open book pricing, owner-preferred subcontractors, and sole accountability for results. Our design-build process features a parallel project schedule and exceptional team communication that supports aggressive project schedules. We commit to delivering your project on time.

  • 03


    We don’t eliminate change orders by building in large amounts of contingency. We do make sure that we know the project is very thorough in detail before we quote. Our approach means walking the corridors and getting to know the spaces and the challenges as thoroughly as our clients do. It means lifting the tiles as well as turning the pages of the plans. Nothing is left to assumptions or chance. We believe that developing a truly accurate scope of work only comes from applying our favorite philosophy: measure twice and cut once.

  • 04


    A high-performing school building is energy-efficient and meets rigorous standards for indoor air quality, lighting, and noise levels. We effectively design and deliver an optimal learning environment with our in-house team of experts.

  • 05


    Performance Services has built a reputation on an unwavering commitment to serving our clients. Our team strives for client satisfaction on a daily basis. From the first owner meeting to the completion of the project and throughout the guarantee, we stand behind our work and with our clients.


"It is worth noting that with any good partnership, the quality of the people who work with you is vital. From the sales team to the engineers to the project management staff, Performance Services has a team of quality individuals who are knowledgeable and professional."

William R. Farley, Assistant Superintendent for Business Services

Community Unit School District 200, Wheaton, IL
