Announcing a New MCS Partnership!

School Expansion and Construction Services

MCS is excited to announce a new partnership to assist Montana schools considering possible expansion and construction.  The goal of the program is to bring together Architects that specialize in school construction, school construction supervision experts and our MCS vendors that provide a wide variety of the products and services  that schools purchase during any construction project.

In many instances Montana Schools are faced with the daunting task of starting to consider expansion and possible construction with limited revenue available to start the process.  MCS’s new partners have committed to helping schools in this “limited up-front revenue available” situation.

A great way to consider expansion and construction in your district!…..Architects, Construction Experts and MCS Products and Services that satisfy all Montana Bid Requirements and backed by our 29-State AEPA/MCS Consortium….all coming together in support of Montana schools!
