AP K-12 Experts Lead Charter Discussion

TEMPE, Ariz. (November 26, 2019) – Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP) recently led a panel discussion titled “Lessons Learned in Charter School Construction – 4 Components to a Better Building Experience.” Curtis McFarland, AP’s K-12 project executive, facilitated the breakout session at the AZ Charter Schools Association’s 6th Annual Business and Technology Summit.

Additional panel experts included school architect Phil Carhuff, Carhuff + Cueva, Chris Louth, AP project manager and former Academies of Math and Science Owner’s Representative, and Anna Charameda, who is an AP project engineer and former construction manager at BASIS.ed .

The panel shared unique perspectives from a combined 130 years of experience, which includes more than 200 completed K-12 construction projects within four components: site, budget, partners, and maintenance. With each component discussed, experts focused on their success in building positive learning environments.

“We have the unique ability to be in an owner’s shoes when it comes to charter school construction,” said McFarland. “Our team includes a former teacher, a former charter school owner’s representative, and a former school construction manager. This allows AP to anticipate a school’s needs while offering solutions they didn’t know were possible.”
