Garfield Traub provides turnkey development services to private and public colleges and universities and community colleges for the efficient delivery of essential facilities.
Our innovative solutions can speed the delivery of student housing, garages, administrative office space, health centers, student unions, arenas and convocation centers, and conference centers and on-campus hotels, among other facilities.
In today’s challenging budget environment, both public and private colleges and universities are searching for ways to deliver essential facilities in the face of severe financial constraints. Higher education institutions are increasingly looking to the private sector to offer solutions. By creating private/public partnerships we enable institutions to enjoy the benefits of ownership while minimizing the impact on their balance sheet, credit rating, and bonding capacity.
Garfield Traub’s innovative approach to facility development can enable universities to implement their master plans, in many cases, years ahead of their current capital budgets. By finding alternative solutions to the delivery of these facilities we allow universities to retain their limited capital budgets for the delivery of their core educational facilities of libraries, classrooms and laboratories. Financing may be accomplished through a variety of mechanisms, including but not limited to off–balance sheet lease–purchase financing.
