Higher Education

When building or updating facilities, California’s higher education institutions face a unique mix of challenges—from seismic hotspots to geographically dense campuses. Harris & Associates project and construction managers identify and execute optimal solutions for every case.

We draw on decades of project and construction management experience to create large, state-of-the-art laboratories, research facilities, classrooms, and office spaces—all with an emphasis on performance, safety, and accessibility.  

Progress with Precision

With so much at stake, Harris considers every detail and takes every precaution to maximize results while minimizing impact. Our team has earned multiple awards for managing complex projects, including the construction of a lab—with highly sensitive equipment—in proximity to a major fault line and several historic properties.

High Standards for Sustainable Development   

We meet the demand for new learning environments that are both technology-rich and environmentally sensitive. Our environmental compliance specialists handle permitting and oversee designs with the aim of operational sustainability and LEED certification.
