CHICAGO, March 18, 2024 – JLL announced today that Tuskegee University, a private, historically black land grant university, has selected it to provide integrated facilities management (IFM) services for its 5,000-acre campus in Tuskegee, Alabama.

Tuskegee University is the only Historically Black College and University (HBCU) designated a National Historic Site. As of March 1, JLL’s Education IFM team is responsible for maintaining and preserving the university’s grounds and 100 buildings housing more than 1.7 million square feet.

JLL’s goal is to provide a best-in-class, holistic equipment system and maintenance program on which Tuskegee’s approximately 2,800 students, 807 employees and numerous visitors can rely. To achieve this, JLL is deploying cutting-edge technology, including Corrigo, to efficiently manage and monitor tasks while simultaneously driving savings for the university.

The services JLL is providing includes building engineering; electrical, elevator and HVAC maintenance; fire and life safety; landscaping and grounds maintenance; and janitorial, waste disposal, and recycling services. JLL will also implement a pilot training program with the city of Tuskegee and Macon County School District, resulting in a pathway to employment, along with committing 100% of proposed subcontracted dollars to minority business enterprises.  

“Tuskegee University is excited to partner with JLL in providing full-service, comprehensive and professional building management services to maintain and to preserve the grounds and buildings on the campus of Tuskegee University,” said Marcus Dean, Associate Vice President of Facilities and Construction with the university.

De’Von Williams, Executive Director, Solutions Development, and Reginald Adams, Senior Vice President, Education Operations, with JLL worked with Tuskegee University during the selection process.

“We are thrilled to embark on this transformative journey with Tuskegee University,” Williams said. “Our new relationship is not just a contract; it’s a dynamic alliance that propels us into the future of innovation, collaboration and shared success.”
