Building Enduring Relationships and Strong Communities

As an integrated development, construction, and real estate leasing and management enterprise, we bring an owner’s perspective to our work, collaborating closely with clients, architects, and other stakeholders to envision and plan for success long before ground is broken.

Referendum Services

Communication is the key to the success of any project. Our project team understands the need for effective communication. We believe in a participatory process involving the community and school administration, staff, and student input in the referendum campaign.

During the referendum campaign, Kraus-Anderson will attend and support the District’s community informational meetings and presentations and answer questions relating to construction cost or schedule regarding the proposed project.

Since 2013, Kraus-Anderson has assisted 69 Districts to pass over $2.9 billion in referendums.

Facility Assessments

Kraus-Anderson provides comprehensive facilities assessments that identify and prioritize facilities improvements, leading to data-driven strategies that protect the long-term value of existing properties. Our facilities assessments start with a detailed onsite review of the facility, identify facility improvements, prioritize those recommendations, and associate costs for recommendations- all in the spirit of protecting the facility’s long-term stability.
