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, which includes sustainable and flexible learning spaces that can easily be repurposed depending on evolving programming needs.

Design-Build Construction

Our Approach

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.
