Property Information

Jair Lynch was awarded a contract to provide owner’s representation and advisory services for Howard University’s “2020 Central Campus Master Plan Projects.” In support of Howard University’s vision and the “Howard Forward Strategic Plan”, Jair Lynch has been engaged to support the university in the significant renovation of the historic Myrtilla Miner Building. The renovation of the historic Myrtilla Miner Building encompasses the following services:

  • Budget & Schedule Tracking & Management
  • Contract Negotiation & Advisory
  • Construction Management & Advisory
  • Design And Consultant Management
  • Monthly Reporting & Stakeholder Communication
  • Transition Coordination & Management
  • Regulatory and Entitlement Support

Work will be largely inside but throughout the building. Significant historical features are being preserved, such as the Miner Building’s tall arched windows, two gran staircases that rise from the ground floor to the first and second floors, and limestone baseboard in corridors. Renovations will also spur collaboration between the Middle School and the School of Education. For instance, there will be an observation room where the School of Education students can watch and listen as experienced Middle School teachers conduct classroom instruction. Other new spaces will include a modern science lab for the Middle School, a School of Education Student Commons and a Teachers Lounge.

In addition to this contract, Jair Lynch has been awarded contracts to provide advisory and development services for another Howard University campus building project, along with the modernization and expansion of the existing Howard University Hospital to include a new medical office building. These contracts are anticipated to start in 2024-2025.
