Schools are so much more than just classrooms. They are wellness centers, cultural destinations, community meeting places, and in times of need, shelters from the storms of life. Communities need—and deserve—resilient facilities that offer flexibility, efficiency, and safety. Woolpert’s architecture, engineering, geospatial, and strategic consulting professionals integrate these qualities into every aspect of educational design.

Our education architecture is distinguished by the independence of the schools we design for. Each school has a unique education philosophy that is our basis for creative design. Experience facilitates our efficient resolution of common challenges. Expertise focuses us on distinctive challenges that lead to meaningful education architecture.

Woolpert has designed, constructed, renovated, mapped, upgraded, and retrofitted educational facilities of every shape and size. We’re well versed in the unique needs of K-12 as well as higher education; yet, we go beyond the classroom. Athletic facilities, dormitories, student centers, infrastructure—you name it, we’ve worked on it.
