In Session: Spring 2022

Greener Days Ahead


Spring has officially sprung, and the warmer weather welcomes a renewed appreciation for our surroundings.

As architects and engineers, we’re always drawing inspiration from the world around us. It’s what drives us to keep up with the latest industry trends and approach every project with fresh ideas. At LaBella, we also believe in designing for a better world, meaning we implement sustainable design practices that reduce negative environmental impacts and preserve our communities for years to come.

In this issue, Project Manager Stacy Welch, AIA, discusses how educators are adding greenhouses in creative ways to teach students about nutrition, agriculture, and sustainability. Solar Construction Program Manager Linden Speranza, PMP, shares details of several New York State-funded grants that help schools identify ways to reduce energy use and transition away from carbon-based fuels.

School’s In Session

It’s easy to rest on the expertise acquired in over 30 years of design for K-12.  We’ve completed over $800 million in Capital Projects for schools and along the way we’ve learned a thing or two.

However, we believe experience alone isn’t enough to add real value to our clients. Just as our industry and business has evolved, so has education.  The science of learning has advanced, and so too must our classrooms.

In Session is an awareness that for us, school is always in session. We continue to seek opportunities to learn from experts in pedagogy, benchmark projects from across the country, and explore new material and technology applications.  We spend time researching the questions and issues facing our clients and share what we learn here with you.
