K-12 Solutions


Helping you make the grade in timely construction

Across the nation, school district budgets have been shrinking while demands for better facilities have been increasing. At Gordian, we can help meet the demands of accomplishing work for the best possible price, while not sacrificing any of the quality. We work with elementary, middle and high schools all over the country to facilitate construction projects that range from classroom and restroom remodels, to security and energy efficiency updates.

We can help school districts of all sizes and types save time and effort, avoid disputes and project delays, all while increasing budgetary control on small to large construction projects. We know you’re constantly assessing budgets, timing, volume, and visibility when planning your projects. That’s why it’s especially important to hire quality contractors and facilities experts with extensive knowledge in the K-12 environment.

When you use a Gordian solution for your district’s construction and maintenance work, we’ll help you secure contractors who will work with your safety and scheduling requirements and who can work in a high volume situation with the least amount of complaints from teachers, students and staff. And with our best-of-breed benchmarking and facilities intelligence data, schools across the nation make the best decisions about their campus facilities. Equipped with data from over 25,000 buildings from across the U.S. and Canada, we’ll help you plan, prioritize and manage facilities maintenance and upgrades to get the most mileage from your budget.
