Just as not every individual is qualified to teach, not every developer is qualified to design and build for the unique requirements of public schools and institutions of higher education. SGT has dedicated itself to honing our craft in order to provide thoughtful analysis, innovative solutions, actionable strategies and quality facilities for these entities.

We've used our turnkey development services to provide a full spectrum of expertise in the creation of academic urban villages, mixed-use campus developments, schools, career and technical academies, performing arts centers, university hotel and conference centers, events centers and more. All of our campus development efforts are fueled by a genuine desire to create spaces that enhance student life and encourage learning.


Our values are grounded in the unique environment of education. We realize that our clients must build facilities and campuses with a wide array of community concerns, environmental issues and stakeholder interests in mind. As such, the core of our philosophy is to help our clients:

  • Accommodate increased enrollment
  • Improve student performance
  • Attract and retain students, faculty and staff
  • Improve matriculation rates
  • Provide efficient services and lower energy costs
  • Foster community and industry partnerships
  • Create value from existing real estate assets
