Education in America is being reimagined. University, community college, and K-12 school capacity is now measured by safe physical distancing. Outdoor spaces are being designed to reduce indoor density occupancy. HVAC systems are being recommissioned and enhanced to provide additional outside air and improved filtration to help contain the spread of airborne respiratory infections. Touchless fixtures are being installed to decrease the distribution of germs spread by contact. And environmental growth management strategies are being implemented to reduce chances of mold and mildew growth over the long-term when schools are non-operational.

The professionals at McKim & Creed collaborate with all types of educational clients to survey and engineer healthy, productive learning spaces. Our experience ranges from new buildings; to lab, classroom, and housing renovations; to central energy plants that include chilled water, hot water, steam and medium voltage distribution systems; to facility automation and energy conservation. And to ensure we understand the re-imaginings that the industry is undergoing, we stay current on industry guidelines and safety recommendations and are involved in the associations that help determine new guidelines for university, community college, and K-12 school safety. We are here to help keep our buildings safe, efficient and functional.
