Higher Education

We understand the profound impact that education has on an individual’s future. We embrace our responsibility as designers to society and future generations by creating spaces and environments that foster structured learning and social experiences that celebrate diversity and inclusivity. We create community by design.

DLR Group is deeply rooted in a commitment to understanding our clients through a personal engagement process. Embracing each unique campus culture is vital to the success of every project, and our 360-degree view enables us to fully understand users who will be impacted–including students, faculty, administration, staff, and visitors.

Our commitment to sustainability and in-depth research places us on the leading edge of discoveries in the industry. Our team is committed to protecting our planet, and as a result, DLR Group’s average reduction targets of predicted energy use for high-performance designs consistently exceed the national average.
