In Session: Spring 2024

Modernization for a New Generation


Every student learns differently and there is no one size fits all approach to education. As technology has evolved, so has our ability to modernize today’s classroom to meet the needs of all students, regardless of their learning style.

In this issue, we explain agency-rich learning environments and other key takeaways from EDspaces 2023. Our experience collaborating with over a dozen industry experts to design a STEAM school with classrooms that mimic real-world work environments is illustrative of what’s possible.

A new type of demand—electric school buses—is challenging districts to look at their existing infrastructure and budgets to meet aggressive zero-emission regulations. We take you through a strategic approach toward zero-emission transportation and consider how the electric grid will also require modernization.

Finally, since modernization requires investment and prioritization, we close this issue with a breakdown of Building Condition Surveys as BCS season arrives.

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.
