    Charter, Public & Private Schools

About Us

The Radius Development Group (RDG) is working towards becoming the leading non-profit organization in the Greater Tampa Bay who will bring a proven track record of success in the development of charter/private schools and churches within the community.

What We Do

Collectively, RDG has over 40+ years of construction & architectural/engineering experience, with the majority of the last seven years spent on the development of charter schools.

We understand charter schools; specifically, the time sensitive nature of their development, as well as the restrictive price per student the State of Florida is willing to pay, regardless of the location. We believe our experience with the development of charter schools is second to none within Hillsborough County.
