Anderson Strickler’s mission is to help you define your vision, develop a research-based and actionable plan to achieve your vision, and transform that vision into reality.
Because we work exclusively with colleges and universities, Anderson Strickler understands their particular issues, strengths, and challenges; organizational structures; and processes. We blend this understanding with the best of private-sector techniques and efficiencies, plus the direct involvement of our principals Linda Anderson and Greg Strickler, to help clients achieve success with their campus housing and real estate planning.
A plan that does not result in a project is nothing much, but a project that does not proceed from a plan is nothing at all. We strive to provide actionable recommendations for projects that are implementable, with facilities that can be efficiently maintained and are ultimately self-renewing and sustainable.
Our philosophy is based on what we’ve learned in over 20 years in practice:
Campus projects require a broad consensus of support if the final project is to fulfill its potential of meeting the needs of the user—for now and for the life of the project.
Our highest and most valuable role is to be a trusted, third-party advisor with no vested interest in the recommendations that we make, and only the client’s best interests in mind.
In order to develop a program that best suits—economically and functionally—the needs of the users and the institution, we base our recommendations on focused market research and input from potential users, programs responsive to the students and institution, and sound financial underpinnings.
