Pullman High School
CSG is a cooperative service program created by Educational Service District 112 (ESD 112).
Providing services beginning with Pre-bond facilities planning and Post-bond communication.
Capital Levy | Bond Planning
CSG partners with school districts for all aspects of bond and levy planning – from conception through the election and beyond. Services include cost benchmarking, debt capacity and taxpayer impacts (in coordination with district’s financial advisor), analysis of short and long-term facility needs, linking facility needs with the educational program, building condition assessments, enrollment trends, community engagement, as well as testing potential development scenarios. Other planning services include Study & Survey updates, assistance with Capital Facilities Plans, and grant program guidance.
Project/Construction Management PM | CM
As the school district’s advocate, CSG provides rigorous oversight and quality control processes to support the successful planning, design, construction, occupancy, and warranty management phases of capital projects.
Constructability Reviews CR
CSG performs a formal third-party review of architect/engineer design drawings and specifications, and proposed construction schedules before the project is competitively bid. The CR identifies recommended improvements and later confirms if the recommended improvements were incorporated in the bidding documents in order to mitigate errors and omissions in the bid documents, which will reduce schedule delays and cost changes during the construction phase.
Building Commissioning Cx
CSG applies a disciplined third-party procedure during the design and construction phases of a capital project to provide the school district with a facility that is fully functional and operating as designed, specified and constructed prior to final acceptance of the project.
Value Engineering Studies VE
CSG conducts a structured review protocol during the design phase or a project. When evaluating the quality, use, life, appearance, and required features of a facility, the value engineering study team identifies specific opportunities that will allow the architect/engineering teams to maximize function, cost, and value in design.
Furniture Fixtures | Equipment FFE
CSG partners with school districts and architects/designers to select FF&E that meets criteria for creating the most effective teaching and learning environment while staying within the district’s budget constraints. Items are competitively selected from available contracts to meet legal compliance and to ensure the best price, design, function and warranty. Services include planning, guidance in selection/purchasing and management of delivery/installation, as well as a final product and warranty information.
Indoor Air Quality Assurance
The importance of quality indoor air for the learning environment cannot be over emphasized. The ability to react to changing conditions easily and quickly has not been readably available. The CSG Indoor Air Quality Assurance Program assess your buildings current condition and makes recommendations to improve the air quality with adaptability for whatever the future holds.
WA Clean Buildings Act Program
Under the current WA Clean Buildings Act, school district facilities will be required to meet energy use intensity (EUI) targets for net energy use of each school district facility less than 20,000 gross square feet, document EUI calculations using the ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager Benchmarks, submit an energy management plan and an associated operations and maintenance plan to achieve the energy management plan.
A Thank You to our Partners | Washington School District Partners Since 1994
Having experienced people who have gone through the school construction process was very reassuring. We relied on CSG to provide expertise in building a new school and they did not disappoint.
The overall goal was to be as cost-conscious as possible while providing the best product for our community and we reached our goal. CSG has expertise and knowledge in saving districts money in the school construction process and they helped our project to be completed on time and on budget.
