Turnkey Real Estate Services
CSP has the ability to pursue a project without a financing contingency. Its internal financing capability is a distinct advantage for charter school operators, smoothing the way and fast-tracking development for qualified operators.
Charter School Properties also works closely with Building Hope, a 501(c)(3) organization, which provides funding and financial management for all aspects of charter school facilities.
Site Selection and Acquisition
CSP’s team provides thorough due diligence to guide sound site location decisions and build a solid case for governmental approvals. We perform expert market and demographic analysis and site design studies at this stage. When the location is selected, CSP handles all aspects of land acquisition.
Working closely with operators, CSP designs facilities that will achieve their vision. For new construction, our flexible, customizable prototype plan speeds the design process, while creating innovative, high-tech learning environments. With “smart” classrooms and separate laboratories, CSP’s 40,000-square-foot prototype plan features an esthetically pleasing facade with building articulation, pleasant colors, ample landscaping, pedestrian canopies, outdoor lighting and a large outdoor clock placed above entry fixture.
When renovation is the best approach, we provide full design services for upgrade or adaptive re-use.
Approval Process/Community Relations
CSP is skilled in the governmental entitlement process, from site approval to rezoning, facility permitting and review. We also take the lead in educating and communicating with the community about the facility design, and we aim for “neighborhood-friendly” solutions that address issues such as traffic impact to best advantage.
Our team recognizes that schools have hard and fast deadlines to be operational. We bring the proven capabilities to manage the process with maximum efficiency and to expedite delivery schedules as needed.
CSP facilities are great places to teach and learn, designed for long-term efficiency. As your long-term facilities partner, CSP has shared interests to see that your charter school operates safely, economically and efficiently.
Planning for Growth
Our schools are designed from the start to accommodate expansion needs. You can be assured of room to grow, with plans for new facilities smoothly executed as student population increases and progresses through grade levels.
