HSC’s Higher Education Expertise
Every project, large or small, has an impact on the institution’s staff and students, campus master plan, capital budget and, of course, its school calendar. Understanding the “WHY this project is necessary” is fundamental to infusing the delivery team (owners, department heads, designers, and constructors) with the importance of milestone schedules, clear communication, and prompt decision making. A client’s project may be to update a student living or learning environment, to help to grow student enrollment, or to build a new research facility to attract national grants. Or, possibly the goal may be to build a new multipurpose classroom attracting the highest caliber of professors. We know that bringing a renovated or new facility online, on time, is never an arbitrary decision.
Similar to working in the healthcare environment, potential facility shutdowns, excessive noise, adaptation to the users’ needs, people and material logistics, along with student and staff safety are all part of any project’s “master” execution plan. HSC’s experienced team focuses on the “what CAN happen” as keenly as on the “what NEEDS to happen.” We refine logistics, debate contingency plans, and secure buy-in at every step before the commencement of the construction process.
HSC’s Higher Education portfolio has a 25-year history of helping colleges, universities, and academic medical centers achieve their goals of providing the very best living and learning environments for their students, their staff, and their communities. Our classroom buildings, teaching labs, living and dining complexes, and sports facilities represent the next generation in campus life.
