“Owners of multiple facilities share the common challenge of effectively
maintaining their buildings through good and bad financial times.
Since we ultimately must be good stewards of the tax payer’s money, it becomes
imperative to make fiduciary decisions on their behalf.
CARMI Design Group has been instrumental in helping Berrien Springs Public
Schools make those tough decisions. Their comprehensive facility study made it possible to pass a sinking fund millage which will ultimately raise $4 million
over the next 10 years to care for our facilities.
CARMI’s unique scoring system effectively prioritized what, where, when and
how much the improvements would cost our district.”

“CARMI facility studies made it possible for Cassopolis Public Schools
to successfully pass a community sponsored sinking fund.
Over the next 10 years, $2,000,000 in revenues will be generated by this fund.
Building envelope studies with projected cost estimates were instrumental in securing $2,300,000 in Quality Zone Academy Bonds and $500,000
in federal IDEA grants.”
Former Director of Operations Cassopolis Public Schools
“A great priority tool, partially responsible for passing three,
two-year, two mil campaigns for our district.
Our Board of Education is now reacting to “data driven” information
in lieu of our best guesstimation.”
