A Campus Crown Jewel: How to Deliver a Great Facility

Raising money for capital programs is hard. Delivering a great building that will be an asset to your campus for decades is harder. This program will focus on the steps, tips and tricks to delivering a great academic facility on time and on budget:

  • Setting key program parameters as guideposts for the development
  • Mitigating zoning and permitting issues to streamline municipal engagement
  • Building an effective project team
  • Effectively engaging with key stakeholders
  • Managing schedule and pricing risks
  • Developing a robust quality assurance program
  • Planning a building for present needs while maximizing for future flexibility

Learn from the collective experience of colleges, contractors, designers and lawyers to find out what makes for a great project and what leads to teachable moments. This is your opportunity to ask the questions that can make the difference between a problem project and a campus crown jewel.
