What Sets Us Apart
From our experience, we understand the unique needs of Private Schools. So many times, we would hear “we don’t need an architect because we don’t even know what we need”…or “We can’t afford to hire an architect”, etc.…
Private Education Planning Consultants (PEPC) was formed to fill the gap leading up to the actual design and construction of specific, fully programmed building programs. Most often, these are part of a larger Capital Campaign launched to cover multiple campus improvements lasting several years.
We are experts at leading private schools through the often tricky path of determining what is needed on campus, developing the ideas, building consensus, and representing it to board members and the community at large.
We take this information, build on its momentum, and then author a fully developed, comprehensive Campus Master Plan and associated realistic estimates for construction of each portion of the future campus improvements. With this material, any campus can proceed confidently with fundraising and hiring an architect for the actual design of a fully programmed and budgeted renovation, addition, or new building.
Every Capital Campaign begins with a needs assessment of the campus and then followed by careful project planning before the design and construction of any project ever begins.
