Institutional Construction



Institutional Construction encompasses the design, installation, and maintenance of all of the structural and mechanical components for a Public Works, Healthcare, Educational or Recreational construction project.

There is no “typical” institutional construction project. The types of projects vary widely and have many diverse aspects to them. The planning and implementation of an institutional construction project requires broad training and expertise by all the parties involved, with particular expertise required by the general contractor.

Many institutional construction companies specialize only in design, or the building or the maintenance. Trumbull-Nelson has the expertise to participate in the planning, design, construction and post-construction phases of a project.

Trumbull-Nelson has worked on institutional/municipal projects from town garages to schools. Trumbull-Nelson Construction Company is well suited so that your project will be completed in the most effective and efficient manner. Our services can cover a wide range of projects such as:

Trumbull-Nelson is expert at bringing the right people and companies together to form a Team. We either employ or work with designers and engineers and we can offer you a Design-Build approach. This Team of institutional construction specialists allows projects to start more efficiently and finish on time and within budget. We ensure that all Project Team members are familiar with the Project, the objectives, and with each other. We believe in making use of local resources as much as possible, thereby supporting the community.

Depending on the nature of the project, different trades may be needed to adequately meet the demands of the your project. There may also be state and local government requirements. Prior to construction, most projects will require permitting to ensure that all regulations and guidelines are being met. Trumbull-Nelson Construction can assist you in this effort.

We consult and provide our expertise on items related to:

  • Land Use
  • Site Plan Review
  • Storm/Waste Water
  • Safety/Fire Protection

Institutional Construction is much like residential or commercial construction with regard to how the work is distributed and how contractors are chosen to work on projects. With that said, there are many ways in which an Institutional Construction project is different. Contractors and engineers must have a wide range of experiences when compared to their residential and industrial counterparts.

In addition, due to issues of land use and possible environmental impacts, there often are more complex permitting requirements. Trumbull-Nelson can help with the entire permitting process and submission.

Trumbull-Nelson has the knowledge and experience to make your Institutional Project a grand success.
