Lancaster City Schools, OSFC Consolidates

January 2013

Lancaster City Schools currently educates approximately 3,200 students across eight elementary schools; however, through an Ohio School Facilities Commission-funded project, the District will soon consolidate to five brand-new, state-of-the-art elementary schools.

At the same time, the OSFC, which is now a part of the Ohio Facility Construction Commission (OFCC), is also consolidating its work. Lancaster City Schools is one of the first District's managed under the newly revised OFCC contract. The five new buildings will feature a streamlined approach to Commissioning and Maintenance Planning, with both services provided by one company.

"We're really excited about the opportunity to not only provide Commissioning for Lancaster, but to also provide Maintenance Planning," says Reed Tarkington, Vice President at FSE. "We feel the combined approach will offer a more simplified path for our customer, while having one point of contact will provide a more intimate relationship."

The two-phase project kicks off in 2013. The District hopes to open the first three elementary schools in 2015 and the last two schools by August 2016.
