As part of its transition to Cooperative Strategies, the firm committed to expanding its resources as necessary to offer its clients the most advanced solutions available for facilities planning. Cooperative Strategies opened a Littleton, Colorado office last year and has been providing facilities planning services to a number of school districts in Colorado.
DeJONG-RICHTER is a nationally-recognized educational planning firm with advanced approaches to facilities planning that combine key data analysis with community outreach. With clients across the nation, they have spent decades honing their skills to provide the most expanded services with the best techniques from across the country. Their focus on educational assessments aids educational agencies in crafting facilities plans that reflect the unique needs of their students. The firm places heavy emphasis on community engagement in order to understand the dynamics and desires of each of its clients and their communities.
The merger with Cooperative Strategies provides DeJONG-RICHTER clients additional expertise in the areas of facilities financing and program implementation.
Tracy Richter, Chief Executive Officer of DeJONG-RICHTER, says uniting with Cooperative Strategies was the "right move" for his firm. "This is an exciting opportunity to combine two firms committed to providing the highest quality learning environments. Cooperative Strategies' expertise in financial analysis related to demographics and facilities conditions is an ideal complement to our educational approach to planning."
Benjamin Dolinka, Chief Executive Officer of Cooperative Strategies agrees saying, "The addition of DeJONG-RICHTER and their talented staff allows us to incorporate some of the most refined techniques that have been practiced across the nation. Nothing can replace firsthand experience and we are excited to share their expertise with our clients."
DeJONG-RICHTER will continue to operate under its name until January 1, 2017, when it will formally begin to conduct business as Cooperative Strategies. Benjamin Dolinka will remain the Chief Executive Officer of Cooperative Strategies and Tracy Richter will be the managing partner and President of Ohio-based operations. The merger between the firms will not impact any existing staffing or client relationships.
