Educational Facility

KMBR Architects are known as innovative and forward-thinking leaders in the planning and design of educational facilities. We plan agile school buildings that provide personalized, student-centered learning environments, in which a wide variety of curricula can be delivered. We have developed a deep knowledge and understanding of current and emerging educational practices and design guidelines for schools and how they are best supported and enhanced by facility and learning environment design. Instructional approach, learner needs, ubiquitous technology and the requirement for on-demand spatial flexibility require deliberate planning for learning space agility. Our experience with responding to each school’s educational philosophy and program in the planning of each project has helped us develop an approach that is centered on universal design and agility. Our Education Leadership team includes five, Association for Learning Environments (previously CEFPI) Recognized Educational Facility Planners.

Our unique approach to project visioning supports all educational leadership and community stakeholders. We offer workshops and resources specifically developed to further educate stakeholders on the benefits of agile design approaches to pedagogy and spatial programming. Our school planning experience has been shared with more than 30 BC School Districts.
