Higher Ed

McKim & Creed provides engineering and surveying services for nearly every aspect of higher ed life. This includes new and renovated classrooms and labs to student housing, athletic facilities and parking structures.

Our team has successfully designed engineering systems for a variety of university buildings. These range from early 20th century dormitories to state-of-the-art, 21st-century student villages. Wherever practical, our engineering designs incorporate LEED, Green Globes and other sustainability elements. This allows colleges and universities to minimize environmental impacts both during construction and in the future. In addition, we have extensive experience in campus repairs, renovations, alterations and additional services such as troubleshooting HVAC systems, designing for LEED certification and commissioning.
