System Wide Master Planning – Capital Improvement Program

CSD is the fastest growing School District in the State of Georgia.
Starting Fall 2012, Mr. Prine has been working with CSD to assess their current facility capacity versus projected enrollments for up to an 5 year period.
APM’s role began with conducting facility condition assessments.
APM evaluated each facility as it related to both GA DOE and Local CSD requirements.
– Utilizing the projected enrollments up through 2018 and working with CSD Staff and PTA/SLT representatives, APM developed specific Building Space Programs to accommodate the growth for each facility (K-3, 4/5, Middle and High School).
– Once the Building Programs were approved, APM then moved to develop specific Conceptual Master Plans for each site indicating areas to be renovated, and new construction.
– Each of these Conceptual Master Plans included a specific sequencing plan and schedule of how the improvements could be made on operating campuses.
– Detailed Cost Estimates/Budgets were developed for each facility tied back to a projected total Capital Improvement Need that will be utilized to seek both a GO Bond Referendum in 2015 and a SPLOST Referendum in 2016.
– Along the process, APM managed both Internal and External Community Stakeholder processes including working with the GA DOE for their input and approvals.

F.AVE - 4/5 Academy at 5th Avenue

As Program Manager, Mr. Prine worked with CSD to perform Demographic studies that indicated a need for a new 4th / 5th Grade Academy. His Team evaluated the existing Structure on the site and found it less costly to build a new facility.
