Proactive communication, clear processes, and a focus on building strong relationships give our team an edge when it comes to completing our higher education projects on time and on budget.
Building Facilities for Our Future Leaders
Ohio’s colleges and universities are tasked with creating learning environments that attract, serve, and inspire students. Today’s hybrid classroom experience puts infrastructure and technology systems at the forefront, as well as modern and flexible designs.
Regency has managed and/or completed millions of dollars-worth of construction projects for public and private higher education institutions across the state using all major delivery methods. Past projects include new and renovated classrooms, labs, student housing, athletic facilities, research libraries, and infrastructure upgrades to electrical, mechanical and other systems. Clients have included: Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland State University, Columbus State Community College, Cuyahoga Community College, Hiram College, Kent State University, Lorain County Community College, The Ohio State University, and The University of Akron among others.
Whether renovating or building new, Regency’s clear and transparent processes instill trust and confidence that the job will be managed the right way. Our high-quality work product and attention to detail keep our budgets and schedules aligned, making things easier for the Planning and Facilities teams of our higher education clients.
Key Considerations for Higher Education Construction
Meeting the schedule as planned means everything to colleges and universities, as they rely on the timely turnover of classroom and dorm spaces to generate revenue.
Advanced planning with the client’s facilities team allows us to tailor job site safety and utilization plans for construction in and around occupied buildings, ensuring student, staff, and visitor safety.
Engaging maintenance staff in the design process who know the “pains and aches” of a building leads to a more comprehensive design process prior to the start of construction. This saves costs down the line—especially for aging buildings. Their insights also help us plan around sensitive noise requirements, specialized delivery protocols, and other concerns regarding the programming of a building.
Maintaining a collaborative working relationship with the project team makes for a smoother project experience whether we are working on a new build or a renovation.
