PROJECT MANAGEMENT


If day to day management is our bread, consider project management our butter. It’s what we do. And we’re really good at it. Each member of our project management team had a life-changing undergraduate fraternity experience. We understand the role the facility plays in creating connection and community. Finding ways to make the chapter house feel like a chapter home is something we take extraordinary pride in. We know that features and amenities matter. By successfully completing over $50,000,000 in new builds and renovations in the past three years alone, our team is equipped with a full grasp of what makes a smart design. We’re also keenly aware of how a facility created and managed with the student experience uppermost in mind is the key to eliminating capacity related concerns. And finally, we understand renovations and new builds have incredibly sensitive time and financial implications. Our team has made a habit of partnering with strong, dependable contractors who do high quality work on time and within budget. By effectively managing each project and strategically supporting the experience and the student, we believe we play a key role in turning a four year experience into a lifelong one.

Further, our team works incredibly hard to create an atmosphere of organization and partnership with all parties involved. Whether it’s a new build, a renovation, or a one room refresh, we work with the architects, designers, and contractors to ensure everyone fully understands the end game, the experience we’re working to provide in the place or space. As importantly, we coordinate and communicate in such a way that everyone engaged in the project understands the timing and financial implications of beginning and ending the project on time and within budget. Sound good? Connect with our business development team to put our experience managing projects – ranging anywhere from $5,000 to $15,000,000 – to work for your new build or renovation!
