Does it feel like some of your real estate assets need CPR? Now more than ever, educational institutions strive to serve their student, faculty, and staff population by providing facilities that are efficient and safe, as well as provide for optimal learning, teaching, working, living, sporting, performing, and leisure activities — all within strapped capital, operating, and maintenance budgets. Facilities designed and constructed 50 — or even 10 — years ago may not fit your user needs today. Learning has changed, technology has evolved, student needs are different, and the world is a different place today than it was even in 2020.
The good news is that you do not need to learn to live with outdated spaces that don't serve your needs nor build new buildings when finances may not allow for it. Often, existing space can be repurposed and revitalized into an entirely different use — and sometimes with minimal construction. Through space analysis studies, system updates, facility assessments, programming studies, space planning, and similar efforts, your existing facilities can support your student and faculty recruitment and retention efforts, increase revenue, and save costs — all while meeting your needs today and tomorrow.
