Universities and colleges are micro-communities that need a wide range of facilities and environments to attract students, retain talented faculty and staff, and make the most effective use of land, buildings, infrastructure, and budgets. Their leaders and stakeholders are working to stay at the forefront of innovation and provide valuable opportunities for global learners. ISG’s multi-disciplinary team of experts balance these challenges and partner with higher education clients to make a campus memorable, preserve its history, and integrate ever-changing technology with learning.
We work with faculty, staff, and students to design flexible spaces and align existing real estate and facilities with shifting academic funding resources. We achieve this through strong master planning strategies that support lower operating costs and enhance campus building performance. And, we work to minimize construction interruptions through thoughtful scheduling and phase planning. From classroom buildings, common areas, and performing arts centers to recreation facilities and athletic fields, ISG helps institutions plan and design sustainable sites and structures that allow them to maximize use of sites and buildings enhancing the learning environment.
“ We understand that today’s students are as diverse as the fields of study they pursue, making flexibility and innovation key considerations in higher education planning and design services. ”
