Dr. Chris Crenshaw

Associate Vice President for Facilities Planning & Management The University of Southern Mississippi

“Franklin & Marshall College is so pleased to have retained the services of Sightlines to assist us with better understanding our facilities through their Facilities Assessment & Planning process. Their process was thorough and provides a level of analysis we have only dreamed of. We now have a complete understanding of each of our systems and buildings to help us prioritize what projects to invest in with finite resources.”

David Proulx

Vice President for Finance and Administration and Treasurer Franklin & Marshall College

“Sightlines helped allow us to realign our investment profile to focus more on existing space, reduce the deferral rate of projects in older facilities, and identify the need for a reserve fund to maintain our new space. As George Mason strives to improve the experience of current students and increase enrollment by balancing maintenance and construction, Sightlines’ guidance is a valuable resource.”

Tom Calhoun

Vice President of Facilities George Mason University

“Sightlines helped us create a professional framework to organize our buildings into portfolios. This allowed key campus decision makers to work together to create a plan for funding based on need. This plan has been modeled into the future, and now, we will leave a legacy of funding as opposed to inheriting a legacy of deferred maintenance.”
