Give Your School District the Facilities It Deserves

Communities orbit around their school districts. Parents move to neighborhoods with excellent schools nearby. Entire communities come together to cheer on high school football teams on Friday nights. And in November, schools host elections — the ultimate expression of community priorities. School facilities are the heart of American cities and towns. Gordian offers a range of tools to help you keep that heart beating strong.

“What I love about working with Gordian is I’ve got a group of people that know the Job Order Contracting process in and out. It allows the pressure to come off me, so I can spend my time on other important aspects of the district.”

Arsenio Romero | Superintendent, Los Lunas Public Schools

Job Order Contracting for K-12 Facilities

Construction Project Delivery That Works on Your Timeline

The construction procurement process can be burdensome. That’s a problem when you have only a summer to finish renovations, repairs and alterations. After all, students can’t learn and teachers can’t teach inside a construction zone. That’s why school districts across the U.S. turn to Gordian’s Job Order Contracting. Job Order Contracting is an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) construction delivery method that allows a large number of projects to be completed with a single, competitively-awarded contract. Ideal for completing work in short time frames like summer or winter break, this single-bid process empowers you to start projects faster.

Capital Planning

Capital Planning Assistance

The first step to building an actionable capital plan is to assess current needs, typically with a facilities conditions assessment, or FCA. Our Assessment & Planning solution goes beyond the normal FCA and provides a detailed look into the condition of your facilities to help you understand your inventory of physical assets. A Gordian team will gather and analyze relevant data, interview leaders and stakeholders and strategically segment buildings in a way that makes sense for your district. We’ll even help you communicate the impact of your investments and prioritize project selection. That way, you can allocate resources most effectively.
