K-12 Education

At Stelic, we understand the importance that K-12 education facilities play in shaping the minds of our future generations and are committed to delivering school environments that meet the highest standards of learning, safety, and inclusivity. Whether you’re building a new state-of-the-art elementary school, renovating an existing middle school, or developing a comprehensive high school campus, our team has a proven track record of delivering K-12 education projects of various scales, from small-scale classroom modernizations to large-scale, multi-phase district-wide initiatives that transform the educational landscape.

We Understand K-12 Education Projects


Understanding of the regulations and standards governing K-12 education construction projects, including the International Building Code (IBC), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design, and the ANSI/ASHRAE 62.1 (Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality), ensuring strict compliance and student safety.


Navigate the complex permitting and approval processes associated with K-12 education projects, including school siting, traffic impact studies, and coordination with local school boards, state departments of education, and community stakeholders.


Insight in design practices, such as energy-efficient building envelopes, geothermal heating and cooling systems, and low-emitting materials, to create K-12 education facilities that are environmentally responsible, healthy, and compliant with the CHPS (Collaborative for High Performance Schools) Criteria and the USGBC’s LEED for Schools rating system.


Experience in a wide range of K-12 education facilities, including elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, special education centers, and career and technical education (CTE) facilities.


Develop phased construction plans and temporary facilities that minimize disruption to ongoing school operations, utilizing accelerated construction schedules, modular construction techniques, and collaborating closely with school district stakeholders to ensure the continuity of educational functions and student safety throughout the construction process.


Understanding of K-12 education construction projects that prioritize flexibility and adaptability, incorporating modular design principles, multipurpose spaces, and expandable infrastructure.


Track record of delivering K-12 education projects that meet the highest standards of quality, safety, and performance, with a rigorous quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) process that includes constructability reviews, commissioning, and compliance audits to ensure adherence to all relevant codes, standards, and industry best practices, such as the NFPA 101 (Life Safety Code) and the ANSI/ASHRAE/IES 90.1 (Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings).


Manage the complex coordination and logistical challenges associated with K-12 education construction, utilizing project management tools, such as Procore and Bluebeam Revu, and lean construction principles to optimize resource allocation, minimize waste, and ensure the seamless integration of specialized educational systems, such as interactive whiteboards, wireless networks, and security systems.


We work closely with our K-12 education clients to develop that align with their unique educational visions, and budgetary constraints, employing life cycle cost analysis, energy modeling, and continuous improvement methodologies to optimize the long-term performance, efficiency, and adaptability of each school facility, while ensuring strict adherence to quality, safety, and accessibility standards.
