CLIENT: Rocketship Education
LOCATION: San Jose, California
Marx|Okubo performed a facility condition assessment of ten, kindergarten through fifth grade campuses that provide high-achieving education to mostly low-income students from underserved communities.
Our client hired Marx|Okubo to help understand current and future portfolio physical needs so they can more accurately budget for any deferred maintenance, repairs, and/or improvements that protect the buildings and maintain a healthy environment for the students. With a clear understanding of the true operational costs, Rocketship Public Schools can plan for enhancements to their educational curriculum with greater confidence that those funds won’t be reassigned due to unforeseen physical campus needs.
We were able to accommodate a fairly restrictive site visit schedule due to the sensitivity around interrupting student learning, while at the same time successfully being able to interface with staff to capture intimate operational knowledge at each campus.
