Facility Planning and Construction
John Hodgson Executive Director
Lance Knight Director
The Department of Construction and Contracts Engineering ensures that quality, cost effective facilities, built correctly to Gwinnett's high standards, are provided in a timely fashion to students and educators.
The department also monitors and reviews “in-house” and contracted or privatized services, focusing on cost, efficiency, and customer service. This department also develops new contracts that will increase acquisition flexibility, decrease the cost of obtaining the product/service, and improve the overall speed and efficiency of delivering service to the school system customer. All non-system funded (e.g., Booster Club) projects are coordinated through this office to ensure compliance with school system standards and land use plans.
John Gramigna Director

Using industry best practices, Facility Planning creates quality learning environments for our students. Working closely with consulting architects, Facility Planning ensures that new facilities meet educational requirements and are designed in compliance with all codes and State Department of Education requirements.
