helping colleges, universities and schools build 21st century learning environments that align with their goals and vision

The Albert M. Higley Co. Education Center of Excellence portfolio dates back to 1925 and includes projects for many of the region’s leading colleges and universities, as well as public and private K-12 schools.

Our goal is to help our clients realize their vision in creating 21st Century learning environments.

Our focus is to help our clients provide the best education possible, while achieving the greatest value. You expect innovation and superior performance from your students and staff—we believe you deserve the same from your construction professionals. This difference shows not only in the quality of the buildings we deliver, but also in the relationships we build along the way.

K-12

Today more than ever, educators are challenged to balance costs with the demand for quality learning environments. They're seeking intelligent answers to tough questions, and guidance to make the best decisions. For more than 80 years, we have served as a trusted partner helping school administrators, staff, and communities manage this delicate balance.

Our staff of construction professionals understand educational environments, and work to ensure that the administrators and staff are never surprised. We work hands-on, managing schedule, cost, and quality—always with a vigilant focus on safety. We exercise strict discipline on the jobsite including identification badges for all on-site personnel.
