The Pre-K through Higher Education market offers robust challenges. Schools share a common purpose, yet their needs, funding, and processes can be profoundly different. Knowledge of a school’s design and construction standards, along with its infrastructure and administration are at the top of a project checklist. Different areas within a university – such as medical facilities, technical labs, or sports facilities – can add layers of complexity and required approvals.

How does the outside of a school impact the quality of education inside?

First impressions matter. Designing a space that is both safe and sensory outside helps create the right mindset going inside. A calm, focused mind is open to learning.

Experience matters!
