Educational projects provide a unique set of challenges for the talented staff in our Education Studio. As our educational clients face increased budgetary pressures, successful projects require not only creativity and design expertise, but also a close collaboration with school administrators, staff and user groups in order to understand and realize long-term institutional needs. Facilities need to aesthetically represent the institution’s character and standards while they simultaneously need to be durable, flexible and maintenance friendly. Increasingly, these facilities also need to incorporate sustainable design elements. And this all often needs to be accomplished within strict budgetary constraints. Additionally, whether designing a new high tech instructional building, a student center or renovating a classroom, our designers evaluate each design recommendation based on not only the initial cost, but also the operating, repair and replacement costs, creating comfortable and functional educational spaces that will serve your students and staff for years to come.
