Welsh was, and continues to be, responsive in all areas and it was an extremely positive business partnership from my perspective. I would highly recommend Welsh to anyone and would look forward to the opportunity to work with them again.

Project Summary

Broker: Eric Rapp

Welsh Capital Loan Amount: $5,357,436

Aspen Academy, a K-8 charter school in Savage, began by renting space from a local church. As enrollment grew, it soon became apparent that they would need their own facility. They enlisted Welsh Construction’s charter school construction services to build a new, larger space just for them.

The 42,500-square-foot building will have 27 classrooms, a special needs center, music room, gymnasium with basketball court, lunchroom with full commercial kitchen, and administrative offices.

This charter school construction project began in August 2012, and was completed in just four months to get students into classrooms at the start of 2013. The new building will allow Aspen Academy to increase their enrollment to approximately 620 students.
