Higher Education

Reinventing Spaces for Technology-Driven Programs


Our higher education projects embrace a unique blend of design and engineering to push original, cutting-edge solutions for challenges faced by today's college and universities. We team with our higher education clients to design elegant, purposeful learning environments that respond to the needs of the modern classroom and workplace. 

Integrated Design Group excels at fine-tuning designs to address the current needs and future aspirations of today's colleges and universities.When it comes to designing optimal learning environments, our designers stress the importance of communicating the philosophy of the institutions we work with.

We help colleges and universities face challenges with aging facilities, infrastructure, and renovations—so they can give more time and commitment to their students and faculty. Together, we'll work towards informed and holistic solutions that factor in social, environmental, and financial considerations in the interest of improving the campus environment.

When it comes to creating a framework for academic growth, we hold the same responsibility as the institutions we work with: to provide a rich and diverse learning experience within and beyond the walls of the classroom. 

As students demand new avenues to access education—like online classes and virtual labs—the higher education landscape must accommodate and leverage resources to best serve its student body. As learning environments lift off into unexplored realms, we examine and imagine the possibilities of these spaces and how they can benefit student's overall educational experience.
