There is No Substitute for Experience.
As a leader in design and construction for K-12 schools, we know projects are not a “one size fits all” approach. Every district’s needs are unique. Our passionate and collaborative Educational Planners share decades of experience in public education. They listen and provide a peer perspective to help achieve excellent outcomes for our clients.
Understanding that programming precedes design; we employ educational planners as essential team members of our design team. We examine educational needs, growth capacity, current infrastructure, learning environment, safety, accessibility, curricular enhancement, technology, community areas, site traffic flow, and space needs for special education offerings as part of our programmatic facility study process and reporting.
Meet our Educational Planners
Our Educational Planners bring a qualified, peer perspective based on decades of experience serving as educators and administrators in public schools. Maryanne and Kent have served as teachers, principals, guidance counselors, in curriculum, and assistant superintendents or superintendents. They’ve experienced first-hand successful referendum campaigns and design and construction projects. Knowing that programming precedes design, our architects work closely with our educational planners and clients in the master planning process.
Educational Planner Role and the Value They Bring
- Extensive discussions at leadership and user group levels to identify program needs and priorities
- Collaborate with architects and clients on the development of the space program
- Analyze educational adequacy of design solutions and provide input
- Attend school board meeting updates as requested
- Provide educational information to the school board on trends
- Participate in planning committee sessions
Built to last.
We care about the longevity of our projects and challenge our team to think about how the final product will look and function decades into the future. We are committed to delivering an excellent client experience by leading with programming and executing the strategy behind it.
