Our team works hard to welcome your students home to new and renovated classrooms that help inspire learning. We provide programmatic facilities studies; design and build new schools; renovate, modernize, and expand historic high school campuses; and complete life-safety projects for a wide range of school districts. Solar Power Systems and Energy Leadership programs are part of an overall solution to reduce operating costs so that schools can direct more resources to their teachers and students. It’s what we do.
Avon Community School Corporation
"Avon Community School Corporation has done multiple projects with Performance Services over the last several years. We have been pleased with the construction process and their work has led to positive changes to our schools. Their approach is collaborative and they value input from our team at all steps in the process. They are responsive to feedback and have a strong team in all areas of the organization. We value the high-quality work and collaboration that Performance Services brings to our district."
"We were able to know from start to finish how every dollar was spent. As a steward of Noblesville taxpayer dollars, it is very important to be able to go back to the community and say that we fulfilled our promise. We completed the project on time, under budget, and we scrutinized the process. We have proof of that."
Former Director of OperationsRelated Project
Greendale School District
"The Greendale School District chose to employ a team of community members knowledgeable about engineering and finance, as well as our architect and key administrators to vet the potential project priorities and selection process. A comparison of two responses by the group left no doubt that Performance Services was the clear choice. They came to the table with detailed costs and detailed engineering plans. An analysis yielded that Performance Services would be at least $500K less, provide clear open book pricing, use vendors of our choice, and would return any unused funds to us to enlarge our scope. No ambiguity on costs and no change orders. The choice was easy!"

Before we build anything, we build relationships.
The key to success is total focus on the needs of students, teachers and school communities. That’s why we commit time to get to know individual school clients and their unique needs. We gain a deep understanding of aspirations and challenges. Only then do we put forward solutions that, as experience teaches us, will really work.
We interpret the school environment as a series of flexible learning spaces that will inevitably, and rightly, adapt and evolve. So, as and when a change needs to be made, we will always do our best to accommodate it. We collaborate and communicate to make your desired changes happen without change orders to go with them–saving time and money.

Optimized Learning Environments
Welcome your students back to healthy and comfortable classrooms. Based on our understanding of the learning environment components and their effect on classroom performance, we focus on improving and optimizing school learning environments.
We know how much delivering on our promises matters to our school clients. That’s why we guarantee the outcomes we promise, whether they concern specific environmental parameters, such as temperature, air quality, or energy savings.
We don’t deal with approximations. We prefer real measurements and real numbers. We derive our baseline from current utility bills – real-world consumption rather than models. And we don’t base future promises on vague projections. Instead, we commit to firm savings based on actual consumption today.
It’s important for our team to get as much physical work done during school vacation windows and be as unobtrusive as possible. As a result, fast delivery of optimized environments, with minimized disruption to the life of the school, is at the heart of our approach.
At the outset, we create a single, committed and focused team of expert specialists. We familiarize ourselves fully in advance with the physical, practical issues on the ground. Lines of communication are short. Issues are identified quickly and dealt with swiftly. This makes for a faster delivery environment and better decision quality, based on accurate information.
Equipment Replacement Plan
All physical equipment has a finite productive life. After a certain time, it may be more expensive to maintain than to opt for a replacement. Performance Services helps our school clients to understand the precise status of their physical infrastructure.
Our experts examine aged equipment or underperforming installations. We then produce an objective report that captures key issues such as the age of equipment compared with its expected useful life or the presence of coolants that are no longer legal for use.
