Facility Design & Construction

  • This office supports the district's instructional goals by promoting school environments that ensure high levels of student achievement. We manage the activities of the design consultant teams and contractors working on the major construction and renovation projects at all FCPS sites. We are also involved with the school board's Local Planning Committee and development of the District Facilities Plan and FCPS Facility Standards. In addition, we are responsible for archiving project record documents such as those related to site acquisitions, design, and construction contracts, and approvals from governing authorities.
