Higher Education

Higher Education buildings often embody and reflect a school’s traditions and history. But ever-evolving technological advancements challenge the traditional learning environment, requiring universities to build specialized facilities or markedly adapt older facilities to accommodate these changes. This challenge calls for an open-minded but informed approach to real estate investment that speaks to both honoring higher education’s legacy and supporting its developing future.

At AE7, we excel at visioning and re-imagining real estate. We work with our clients to create campus master plans that provide road maps for real estate spending. Through our space utilization studies, we bring renewed life to under-utilized spaces, creating new opportunities for student and faculty interaction that reinforce an institution’s mission and identity. We understand the importance of preserving and modernizing historic buildings as well as designing new ones that fit into the greater context of the campus, provide enduring flexibility, and ease of maintenance.

Focus areas:

  • Campus Planning
  • Academic Facilities
  • Student Housing
  • Student Services Centers
