Shorecrest Preparatory School

The oldest independent day school in the state of Florida.

the challenge

Shorecrest Preparatory School is a K12 school located in St. Petersburg, Florida. The school has 8 buildings and over 1050 students. The facilities include 28 acres of campus, athletic fields, technology center, library, a covered outdoor pavilion and more.

Although Shorecrest had an assessment done within the last decade, it was done with a software that was neither intuitive nor easy to maintain. Thus, they were in need of another facility assessment. This time around though, they wanted it to be done by a company that would provide them with the tools they needed to maintain their beautiful campus

the zumBrunnen solution

The zumBrunnen team was commissioned to complete a full facilities audit for all the buildings, athletic facilities, and grounds to help them more accurately forecast for the future.

With expertise in education buildings and school campuses, the team was well equipped to identify opportunities for future capital planning. Between two different site visits and various interviews, zumBrunnen was able to provide capital replacement budgets and a reserve funding plan.

zumBrunnen was able to centralize the building data in the FacilityForecast® Software system and train all necessary parties on how to use the software to maintain the property and run reports to help plan expenses in the future.

  • Discovered areas that needed prompt attention
  • 223,367+ sqft campus
  • 8 buildings, instructing 1050+ students

“We were very pleased with the audit by zumBrunnen. The report and software that we were provided at the end is going to be an invaluable tool for us to be able to not only estimate our deferred maintenance, but also make sure that we’re setting aside enough money each year to keep up with our facilities, and to have one place where we can go and see things that need to be done so that instead of being reactive, we can be more proactive in keeping our campus the way we want.”
