BUILDING FOR COLLEGES & UNIVERSITIES
We’ve been privileged to work with nearly all of the higher education institutes in our region. College construction teams are discerning and exacting. We gain their respect by embracing their objectives — and then exceeding their expectations. We know we’re building structures that need to endure 50 to 100 years and yet evolve to meet the needs of a changing student population.
We get to know you and your campus culture. During pre-construction, we’ll develop an understanding of what’s important to you and will help you and your architect ensure the project represents that.
Our success with higher education construction comes down to: communication, coordination and technical skill. We emphasize all three to keep these complex builds on track while minimizing interference with campus life.
When building in close proximity to students and faculty, safety is even more imperative. Our safety director will develop robust, site-specific safety protocols that serve our both our crews and the public.

EMBRACING THE CULTURE
A BUILDER’S PERSPECTIVE ON BUILDING FOR HIGHER EDUCATION
“My history with Gonzaga University spans pretty much my entire professional career. I have been building for GU long enough to where I’m now renovating buildings I originally worked on when I was just a few years past getting my own degree.
My partners and I really enjoy being able to get to know the colleges we build for. Each has their own history and culture and we embrace that unique identity throughout the build.
But as different as each college is, they all share an overriding concern for the welfare of their students and we absolutely embrace that too. It’s gratifying to know that we’re helping to create the places from which young people will go out into the world.”
