Markets: Education

Delivering inspiring environments for academic excellence

To be successful, educational institutions must attract, challenge, and inspire more than just students, donors, and faculty. They must also extend their impact beyond campus life to transform and engage the communities of which they're a part – building the type of strong local relationships, goodwill, and connections that support the ongoing growth and investment necessary to stay competitive.

As project managers and trusted advisors for an array of private and public institutions, we understand the importance of funding, timing, and safety – and the value of building donor and community support.

From the renovation and restoration of historic academic buildings into sustainable, modern facilities to ground-up construction on active campuses, we've helped clients large and small save money, improve academic achievement and accessibility, and boost recruitment of top talent.

Educated Decisions

Whether they're publically or privately funded, running an educational institution is like running a business – and that means spending money wisely and creating a return on your investments. Our cost and risk management experts partner with administrations and design and construction teams of various sizes to provide cost estimating, budgeting, value engineering, and total cost management throughout the design development process. This integrated approach allows us to continually evaluate and estimate project costs as change happens – providing you with the information you need to make your students, and stakeholders, happy.

“The value MGAC brings is partnership and the true ownership they take on with all of their projects. They’ve become an extension of me, my staff, and the University. There are a lot of questions I don’t know the answers to, but MGAC has allowed me to make the proper decisions for the University.”

- Jerry Conrad, Former Associate Vice President for Facilities Operations, The Catholic University of America
