PDCS understands the unique needs of educational facility construction and will utilize a staff that will exceed your expectations. We understand the strict timetable projects require in order to not interfere with an academic year and work with project managers, contractors, and the educational facility to complete the project successfully. PDCS provides a full range of services for Education Facilities from full departments to as needed services.
A full building department operated by PDCS minimizes the liability and personnel expenses to the education facility. This allows for greater flexibility in the annual budget and reduces the responsibilities held by the facility.
PDCS’ personnel have decades of commercial building and plan review experience which is utilized when working with educational facilities. This experience allows for accurate inspections and timely plan review. We continue to provide full building department services to Valencia College and Seminole State College which we have done for over eight years.
PDCS is your partner in the growth of your educational facility may it be a new campus or new classroom building. Our knowledge in project specific building department service for education facilities is unsurpassed. PDCS can provide all the services required for your new construction project or work in tandem with your own designated building official.
A few recent project specific assignments include:
Manatee Technical Institute
PDCS provided all building department services for the main campus construction of Manatee Technical Institute. PDCS provided an offsite building official, multiple inspectors, and a plans examiner – with SREF certification – for this fast tracked project. The main campus is 210,000 square feet of classroom, labs, and academic office areas.
Crystal River High School Renovation
PDCS provided the inspection services for this two phase renovation project of the entire campus. This project was primarily completed while students attended class. PDCS requires all employees working within the public education system to have completed background screenings in accordance to the Jessica Lunsford Act.
Johnson Middle School
PDCS provided all building department services for this underground chilled water piping replacement. We provided an offsite building official, local inspectors, and a plans examiner with SREF certification. Although Johnson Middle School is located in Manatee County PDCS was still able to provide building department services.
PDCS provides supplemental services to multiple educational facilities and can assist building officials with completing accurate plan review and daily inspections. By allowing PDCS to provide these additional inspectors and plan reviewers in times of high volume you are able to better control your expenses associated with personnel. We eliminate the need for educational facilities to increase and decrease their own staff based on demand.
PDCS can also alleviate the need to utilize the Department of Education for plan review. With supplemental services provided by PDCS plans are completed by qualified/licensed plan reviewers in a timely manner and returned to your facility as soon as they are ready to permit.
PDCS prides itself on serving multiple educational facilities in the State of Florida and we are ready to talk to you about this exciting step in supporting your facility. Contact us today.
