W+P goes to CCSA Conference

20th Annual California Charter Schools Conference & Anniversary Celebration
Are you attending the CCSA conference on March 11 – 14, 2013, at the San Diego Convention Center? If so, stop by to visit our Poster Session on March 13 (Wednesday) at the Facilities, Operations, and School Safety Expo!

Our interactive, informal session "How to Succesfully Convert Commercial Office Space to Charter School Use" is scheduled from 9:45 to 10:45 AM, and again from 12:45 to 1:30 PM, details below.

Presenters : Brian Whitmore of Williams+Paddon Architects + Planners, Chris Lemmon of Cornish & Carey Commercial, and Jerry Simmons of Young, Minney & Coor, LLP.

Among the opportunities that separate Charter Schools from traditional public schools is the ability to adapt existing commercial buildings that are not field-act compliant. Today, a tremendous amount of commercial space is available for conversion to educational use given attractive offers.
This workshop presents important information from the architect, broker and legal team including the structural, life/safety and accessibility issues, lease/ ownership options, and legal requirements. The panel will explore multiple case studies and leave the audience with strategies for how to develop a foundation for success.
