Request for assistance on Alternative Education

From: Darla Thurman [mailto:darlathurman@lcarch.com]

Subject: Alternative School Programming Consultant


Mr. Thompson,

Our architectural firm will be proposing to design a new alternative middle school and while we have designed over $400M in new school buildings over the past 20 years, we have not designed an alternative school. We are interested in finding a consultant who has proven experience in the programming of alternative school buildings.


Someone who would be good at a presentation during an interview and who could express there process of fact finding and engagement of the school district administrators and staff to create a building program that would allow us to design a building that would support the unique challenges of an alternative middle school.


We don’t believe that putting the students in just a smaller version of a typical middle school is the right thing to do and we are looking to have someone help ask the right questions and have experience in thinking out of the box in order to develop the schematic design of the new building.


As a board member of the NAEA, I was hoping that you would have some contact with individuals who might fit these qualifications and could be listed in our proposal as our education specialist and co-programmer. And would also be able to attend the selection interview if we are shortlisted.


The proposal deadline is on Monday so I would need to find someone shortly. Please let me know if you have any suggestions and contact information.

Thank you.

Richard,

The interview will be at 10:00am on Tuesday Feb 23. The interview will be 30minutes with 15 minutes of Q&A. Your portion of the presentation would be 8 to 10 minutes and is contained on two slides which Darla sent to you earlier today. After you have had a change to review those two slides, we can talk about your presentation tomorrow over the phone. (let me know a good time)

I would like to make your flight arrangements so there is no out of pocket expense for you. I would need you name as shown on your driver’s license.

There are not many options to choose from and have changed since I looked yesterday.

Delta departing Flint at 4:05pm and arriving in Boise at 10:12pm with a 3ish hr. layover in Minn.

Then Delta departing Boise at 2:40pm and arriving in Flint at 10:31pm

Since the flight gets into Boise rather late, we can meet at about 7:30 am at my office to prep before the interview.

If this will work for you please let me know and I’ll book you flight and room.

Thanks
