BOULDER, Colo., Nov. 13, 2018 – New Summit Charter Academy recently opened its doors to K-6 students. As the first new charter school in Academy School District D20 in 20 years, students and faculty were excited for the school year to begin. Sharing in this milestone is Unified Building Group (UBG), the General Contractor who helped to bring the vision to reality.

The New Summit Charter 2-Story campus consisted of the renovation to the former NavPress Headquarters. The renovation of the 76,000 square foot facility included an Atrium, classrooms, bathrooms, Pre-K offices, and HVAC upgrades.

"New Summit considers UBG a part of the New Summit Family and welcome them into our educational community," says Kim McClelland, the school's Principal and Executive Director.

"It is rewarding to specialize in building fast-tracked educational facilities. To witness the community pull together from the building owners, state and local governments to the faculty, sub-contractors, and vendors with one common goal for the children is humbling. Our team is proud to take this journey with the community." Says John Albert, UGB owner/CEO.

UBG also recently completed a new K-8 Charter School in the Northwest region of the Aurora Public Schools District.

Mike Miles, Founder and CEO of Third Future Schools, a new charter network in Colorado selected UBG to build this school. "UBG was in constant communications with me, the architect, and the owner's representative, ensuring that our interests were being met and any concerns addressed. John's leadership and his team's ability to attract highly-skilled workers made all the difference," says Miles.

UBG was selected for both projects due to their extensive experience working within educational facilities. Their focus is building with sustainable materials, while focused on budget, schedule, and professionalism. John and his team have built for school districts and local government agencies throughout the US. For over a decade, John and his team were the largest classroom-space builder in all of Florida, operating in 32 of the 67 counties.
