RTM understands that universities value flexible spaces to accommodate a variety of needs. We possess the expertise to successfully design MEP/FP systems to meet and exceed the various program spaces found in collegiate buildings. We also are well-versed in the requirements for building K-12 facilities in the private and public sectors.

What K-12 and higher education projects have in common is a need to accomplish the work in a short time frame with construction typically having to be completed over the summer so as not to interrupt the learning process. They also require expertise in many different types of buildings including residence halls, dining rooms, classrooms, theaters, etc.

Science labs in particular require a specialized knowledge of hoods, glass sanitary piping, and explosion proof devices. RTM’s diverse portfolio allows us to effectively engineer systems for any type of educational space.

RTM can provide high-level construction management services and expert MEP consultants who will do research, keep up with industry trends, and know the right questions to ask. We also provide consistent staffing to see projects from initial concept through completion, regardless of duration.
