Trusted Consultant on Campus
For Facilities Leaders and Private Developers, Langan Supports College Projects Around the Country
To go local, or not to go local, that is the question.
While Hamlet struggled mightily over the answer to a similar yet dire question, developers looking to get out of the ground with projects on or off campuses have found a simpler solution — Langan. In other words, the firm has proved many times over that we perform as well if not better where we are not the local consultant, and with 25 offices around the country, Langan is local in a lot of places.
The subject came up numerous times during this month’s National Multi-Family Council Student Housing Conference in Huntington Beach, California. The good news from the event – the market for private developers building dormitories or apartments in college towns continues to grow. A particular emphasis on major state universities where enrollment levels are more consistent could be a trend.
“Langan is well positioned geographically in many cities that are home to major universities,” said Christian Roche, Senior Associate, who leads projects on numerous New Jersey campuses. “At the same time, we have consistently had success raising the bar in and around campuses where we do not have an office. In those situations, developers appreciate how we make their business interests our priority.”
For example, expediting the permitting process is critical for student housing projects. Losing even a few months on schedule because of permitting can push back an opening date and cost the value of semester’s rents. Langan consistently meets or beats such deadlines, which is why developers count on us whether we are local or not, from dense urban environments to rural college campuses … or you could say … hamlets.
