Higher Education institutions make significant annual investments to adapt existing spaces to accommodate changing programmatic needs as well as address deficiencies in campus facilities, especially building systems that are at the end of their life cycle. With budget constraints and a desire to minimize disruption on campus, projects must be prioritized and both short and long-term needs considered. Learn how these institutions have developed successful multi-year renewal programs that support their academic missions, reduce operating costs, and preserve valuable campus assets.
