Pinellas Preparatory Academy

This Pinellas County Charter School approached Icon Consulting in October 2010 with a very unique challenge. They had been approved by the Pinellas School Board to add Kindergarten - 3rd grades at the school to compliment their existing 4th - 8th grade program. Their vision was to purchase the building they presently leased, close on financing, design & permit the improvements and complete construction by August 2011, to coincide with the new school year. Indeed a tall order. They needed leadership they could trust.  

With Icon's leadership of the Team, the project was submitted for permit in January 2011 and purchase completed in March, allowing an April 2011 construction start date. Total value of the construction budget was $2.1 million. Early project cost forecasting proved accurate and the schedule deadline was never in doubt. Construction of the school was completed in 100 days, with the later addition of a covered playground structure.
