This was the ultimate in creative project financing and delivery to provide a solution to the future of two prominent Flint schools. The insurmountable task of negotiated land control from the State of Michigan was achieved in an effort to bring new life to an aging 80-acre campus, and to provide a solution to the Diocese of Lansing and their prior failed attempts to relocate Powers High School. The existing 68,000-square-foot academic building renovation was completed, as well as a 90,000-square-foot commons, theater, administration and gymnasium addition.
