Civic Builders is a non-profit facilities developer that provides turnkey solutions for New York charter school real estate needs. By assuming responsibility for building acquisition, design and construction activities, Civic relieves charter schools of the burden of navigating an extremely complex and competitive real estate marketplace, enabling school administrators to focus time and resources on the important work of educating children. The end result is a new climate for the development of education facilities, founded on strong public-private partnerships, that encourages creativity and innovation. The strategies used by Civic Builders serve as a model for wide-scale facilities development for departments of education and charter school entrepreneurs in New York City and nationwide.
