Line Before TextK-12 APPROACH

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.

  • Guaranteed Outcomes

    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.

  • Minimal Disruptions

    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.
