services

Through Garcia & Associates twenty eight years in business, completion of numerous public and private school facilities, and the experience of our team members, we have developed a close working relationship with all relevant local and state agencies. This includes most of the municipalities within the Southern California area and the state agencies of DSA, CDE, DTSC and OPSC. We have a high degree of knowledge of their rules, regulations and procedures and have been able, on some of our projects, to use these ties to expedite the review processes. Garcia & Associates has worked with College Districts and School Districts on New and Modernization projects. Our experience includes exposure to both the old lease purchase and the new propositions procedures.

Another added value provided to our clients is Garcia & Associates’ knowledge and direct implementation of the school planning concepts of CDE and OPSC. Public educational facilities are unique project types that require prior experience with the planning concepts and building standards. There are many pitfalls that can be avoided by having necessary experience in-house or, at least, the knowledge of whom to contact to get a specific answer. Garcia & Associates‘ staff history of over twenty-eight years in the public school arena makes certain that our team has had the opportunity to implement school designs that meet the state teaching station square footage loading standards, incorporate the philosophical planning concepts contained in “It’s Elementary,” “Caught-in-the-Middle,” and “Second to None,” and provide the necessary educational technology infrastructure. By intimately knowing these requirements, we are also able to creatively interpret their specifications to achieve unique solutions in addressing today’s problems such as cost containment and the implementation of class size reduction. Garcia & Associates can deliver outstanding value to your projects through our philosophy of programming and design that are schedule and budget driven.
