Construction Project Management Software for Education: K-12
As a school district executive, you are probably very aware of just how expensive
school construction costs. In fact, 2008 saw the greatest percentage of construction
dollars spent on new buildings since 1979 with $13 billion on new schools. This
doesn’t even include those dollars spent on additions to existing buildings and
the retrofit and modernization of existing structures.
