Education Design

Today’s schools are preparing their students to be the teachers, doctors, architects, engineers, scientists leaders and dreamers of tomorrow.

Our passion for education is woven into each of our designs. From state-of-the-art hospitals, to technology-extensive government agencies, to collaborative and flexible corporate offices, our education designers take the concepts we are implementing into each of our markets and create compatible, fostering, and cutting-edge education facilities that support exploratory learning. Our responsibility as designers is to not just provide a building where students can learn, but to create an environment that provides them the freedom to dream big!

With schools laying the framework to inspire and evolve the lifelong learner, the tools and resources utilized are implemented to allow each child to seamlessly transition from student to leader. Cushing Terrell began as an architecture and engineering firm in 1938, focused solely on education. But the team quickly discovered that if we wanted to support and empower the evolving student, we had to evolve and step outside the realm of traditional education design.

Safety &
Security

Our education planners and specialists prioritize designing both welcoming and safe learning environments that support the whole student. Our designs encourage student collaboration, communication, and active learning while utilizing the principles of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED).

Student-Centered
Experiential Learning

We push the boundaries of educational facility design to match the unique and evolving needs of the global learner. It is crucial to ensure our secondary and post-secondary education environments allow students to seek new ways of interacting with their learning environments, the community, industry leaders, and each other.

Student Life
on Campus

Students are adventurers who love to enjoy life. They are pioneers, explorers, and the future of our businesses and communities. We believe the whole student experience should be the primary vision of each investment, improvement, and design decision. The ultimate campus experience is one that defines, excites, recruits, and inspires.
