The ICS Advantage

How changes in education and your community lead to conversations

Facilities play an important role in people’s lives and are central to providing places to live, learn, work, and play. No matter where you are in the process, our team of construction consulting professionals work across all phases of a project’s life-cycle. We bring innovation, clear communication, and unparalleled technical expertise so you can make informed decisions that will positively impact your project and the people it serves.

The ICS advantage is a proven three-phase K-12 master planning process that provides a superior project experience and outcome. How does this process happen you may ask? Well, changes in education and in your community lead to conversations around 21st Century learning experiences. That’s where the ICS team comes in and that’s how our team was successful in passing over $245 million in voter-approved funds on Nov. 5, 2019.

  • Phase 1: Develop Data
    Through facility assessments, educational adequacy assessments, demographic assessments, financial analysis, stakeholder meetings, and listening sessions, the ICS team works through this phase to develop data that help drive informed decision-making.
  • Phase 2: Develop Options
    Through data analysis and stakeholder feedback sessions, facility solutions and financial solutions are developed that best meet the needs found in the previous phase.
  • Phase 3: Develop the Final Plan
    Once the data and options have been developed, the final plan is created along with the approval of the School Board, the community if required, and the execution and implementation of the final plan.

At ICS, we help you plan, build, and operate your facility well. We work on projects from the ground-up or anywhere in between, and help build a bright and successful future for our clients.
