Wake County Public School System Goes Live with Kahua for Education

Kahua, a leading provider of capital programs and construction project management information solutions, announces Wake County Public School System (WCPSS), has gone live with Kahua for Education to manage its $2.4B seven-year Continuous Capital Improvement Program. WCPSS, the largest school district in North Carolina and the 15th largest in the United States, will utilize Kahua’s purpose-built solution to drive efficiency throughout the lifecycle of their capital program.

“We recognize the key role that Wake’s schools have in shaping the future leaders of our diverse community and seek to build and provide facilities in support of that purpose,” said Jack McAleer with Cumming, who serves as Director of Program Controls for WCPSS Facilities Design and Construction.  “Kahua’s collaborative project management solution provides a robust and scalable owner centric platform, capable of evolving with our capital projects over time, and we will leverage that technology to efficiently deliver exceptional schools for WCPSS.”

Kahua’s school construction management software was chosen to modernize WCPSS’s processes and workflows, while providing both project and program management functionality to work more efficiently and effectively, delivering safe and up to date learning facilities for the students and faculty of Wake County.

“We are pleased to add Wake County Public School System to Kahua’s roster of districts across the U.S. looking to modernize how they manage their capital programs,” said Scott Unger, Kahua Co-Founder & CEO. “The challenges school districts face in managing capital programs are distinct from other industries and have a profound impact on our future leaders. We took all this into account when developing Kahua for Education, and today we are proud to say over 1.2 million students are spending much of the year in structures that we had a hand in delivering.”
