    The purpose of this paper is to investigate which theoretical elements of adding value with? real estate are applied in practice in accommodating primary education and in what way these are elements relevant to the stakeholders. A literature study of usual CREM strategies has been used to build a theoretical framework with regard to the value a building can create for different stakeholders. Interviews were then held with various professionally involved people in order to understand to what extent the general theory is taken into account with regard to “added value” for the stakeholders of primary school buildings. The data show that CREM theory also can be applied to the “not for profit” school buildings, but that not all potential possibilities to add value with real estate for primary education seem to be applied in practice.
