Higher Education

Transform your Chicago-area campus into a sustainable, strategic and financial asset that attracts students, faculty, staff and donors.

By aligning your real estate portfolio with your school’s mission and goals, your Chicago-area campus can become a strategic advantage that cuts costs. Our local, experienced higher-education consultants will identify opportunities based on your objectives, and prioritize projects based on what will make the highest impact in both the short- and long-term.

Our campus real estate services include:

Campus planning: Review your real estate portfolio and strategy, and identify opportunities to improve attractiveness, accessibility and more. If you need new facilities, we can assist with location planning, financing, lease or sale negotiations, and construction.

Project and development management: Looking to revamp your campus layout, upgrade buildings or make dorms more comfortable? We’ll plan, coordinate and manage any project on your behalf. Read how we helped create Roosevelt University's new "vertical campus" in the Loop.

Property and facility management: Particularly for schools with large campuses or multiple locations, significant savings can be achieved through proactive facility monitoring and management.

Energy and sustainability services: Showcase your commitment to future generations with a campus-wide sustainability program. Some schools we’ve worked with have slashed energy bills by 20 percent, and cut their environmental footprints in half. 

Local client spotlight

Roosevelt University’s “vertical campus”

"This project was transformational in every way. The students feel more energized, the faculty more innovative—in fact, they have created more new programs in the last two years than in the past 10. Even our population has shifted—more than half is now in the 18–24 age group. The building has inspired an educational community to move forward.”
