We Focus on Learning Environments
Specialization is at the core of our approach. We focus on planning, design, and construction management services for learning environments and academic research centers.
This specialization gives us valuable insight into the latest needs of these facilities, including the technologies they house, the teaching and research methods they support, and the ways their design and construction are managed, funded, and approved.
Committed to collaboration & transparency
Our emphasis on learning environments has taught us that effectively addressing the complex programmatic needs and diverse stakeholders of these projects requires a collaborative and transparent design process.
We navigate this process with an enthusiastic, hands-on approach and a focus on frequent and open communication. By regularly exceeding client expectations for both process and end results we build long-term relationships that often extend across multiple projects.
Dedicated to learning
We believe that architecture can do much more than provide a space for learning to happen. This is reflected in the enthusiasm we put into designing remarkable learning environments and doggedly seeing them through to their completion and opening day.
As specialists in learning and research environments and experts in architecture’s ability to shape human behavior, we regularly help clients find ways to take projects to the next level. Through collaborative planning and intense interaction with stakeholders, we uncover the unexplored potential of a facility to support an institution’s values, mission, and daily operations.
Building a better future one building at a time
The principles of sustainable design are woven into everything we do. This includes everything from our ability to design projects targeted for the highest levels of LEED certification to the way we manage our office’s ongoing activities.
Clients also benefit from our use of the latest technologies for project design and documentation – including Building Information Modeling – and our up-to-the-minute knowledge of the latest technologies that are improving the efficiency and effectiveness of learning environments.
