Seminar Topics

In this one-day class, co-sponsored with the Massachusetts School Building Authority, attendees will be immersed in the story of a specific public building construction project from the early planning stages through construction and the building “coming to life” as put to the test by the public end-users. Class participants will gain insight from project management teams, owner’s project managers, architects, building committee members and others. Class participants will discern the key ingredients for a successful project. The Story of a Building class will take place in the building under discussion and attendees will get to tour and ask questions about the facilities. This MCPPO semester’s class will include the following topics:

  • strategies for obtaining voter's approval;
  • requirements for the educational program;
  • ideas on collaborating with other school districts to outfit a school; and 
  • guidance on calculating MSBA reimbursements.

The class is open to all interested parties and does not require any prerequisite classes. It may be used for MCPPO recertification credit.
