Construction Program Management

Whether you are constructing new or renovating existing facilities, capital improvement projects come with many challenges. TASB Facility Services understands the importance on building a program and the amount of time, effort and experience that is required during each phase of those projects. Facility Services provides independent, school district advocacy and is available to alleviate school district's issues and concerns.
