When a client’s mission is as challenging as training tomorrow’s leaders, its goals for projects extend well beyond on-time and within-budget delivery. After all, schools and universities are more than collections of buildings—they’re environments that support efforts to tap student potential and inspire efforts to learn.
Parsons Brinckerhoff offers schools and universities a full range of services in support of new construction as well as capital improvement programs intended to modernize facilities, accommodate increasing enrollments, and allow school districts and educational institutions to operate more efficiently and sustainably.
We draw on 125 years of experience in all forms of infrastructure to assist schools and universities in meeting the challenges of providing buildings, housing, utilities, and roadways in support of a safe and comfortable environment that facilitates teaching and inspires learning. We understand that in addition to students and faculty, schools and universities must accommodate a range of stakeholders including parents, staff, alumni, bondholders, and—for public institutions—taxpayers.
Among the services Parsons Brinckerhoff provides to schools and universities are: architectural, building and landscape design; civil, structural, mechanical/electrical, plumbing, fire protection, and acoustical design; program, project, and construction management; sustainable development and industry certification; commissioning and retro-commissioning; facility condition assessments; campus facilities and utilities master planning; building information modeling (BIM), 4D and 5D visualization; energy and feasibility studies; traffic studies; environmental consulting; and web portal management information systems and controls.
