Project Description

South Vermillion had experience working with Performance Services on several successful guaranteed energy savings projects and needed to complete a major renovation project in two phases in 2015. The school selected the design-build delivery method because of their confidence that the same level of quality with open-book, transparent pricing and a no change order guarantee would apply. 

Project Highlights


  • Auditorium Remodel with new seating, flooring, soundboard, lighting, and projector
  • Science Wing Renovation
  • New science casework, fume hoods, and lab gas installation
  • Gym Bleachers
  • Secure entryways in each school building 


  • Replacement of tennis courts and fencing
  • Replacement of outdoor track and fencing
  • New roof overlay on the high school building


  • New sodded competitive soccer field
  • New lighting, bleachers, and concessions building
  • Multiple new soccer and football practice fields


  • Addition of new auxiliary gym
  • Addition of support spaces including new restrooms, locker rooms, concessions, and a community fitness room
As I have come to expect, every aspect of the design-build project has been outstanding. I have always looked at more than the just the price tag when dealing with a major renovation project. The level of commitment and quality of service provided is second to none. I very much appreciate the working relationship and final product.
