One of the largest segments of Shriver and Holland Associates' practice is educational facility design meeting K-12, college, university, and special training facility needs. Our experience in the programming, planning, design, and renovation of educational facilities brings creativity, knowledge and experience to each new education project.


The quality of the learning environments that we create for our children is a direct reflection of our values as a society and our commitment to the future. School facilities are critically important civic structures, and they also serve to define the culture of the community. Our service experience includes the review of educational programs, evaluation of existing facilities, preparational project recommendations, field interviews/investigations, review of site conditions, design alternative exploration, community participation, and efficient establishment of preliminary cost estimates while effectively addressing the client's long term requirements and the communities desires. Our passionate commitment and achievement in the successful creation of successful lower, middle, and high school learning environments is reflected in the satisfaction of our clients and the students served.

Performing Arts facilities today are playing a more significant role in serving the community's needs than ever before. Not only do they provide the venue for the art forms of music, drama, and dance, they contribute to the educational, entertainment and economic vitality of the region. Active community participation in the design effort yields an improved result and we believe that this approach is vital in any type of cultural facility. Public relations efforts influence public perceptions, fundraising, community support, and visitation. The communications strategy, the exhibit program, and the building design must be mutually reinforcing, Shriver and Holland Associates often provides planning and design services to projects including museums, performing arts facilities, libraries, and athletic facilities in a collaborative setting. Completed projects cover a wide range of sizes and complexity.
