MGT America

ACUHO-I and MGT America have collaborated on the MGT & ACUHO-I New Construction and Renovation Survey. The collected data is useful for comparative purposes with similar projects, to negotiate better construction rates (i.e., cost per square foot), and to better understand the scope and components of projects undertaken at other institutions.

The survey is conducted every other year, with off-years spent revisiting the data and often providing case studies to illustrate the survey results. MGT America staff also report survey findings in ACUHO-I publications and at conference events.

Questions about the ACUHO-I and MGT New Construction and Renovation survey should be directed to Diana Goldstein at dgoldstein@mgtconsulting.com.
