K-12 Educational Buildings

K-12 schools offer challenges for MEP systems designs, because many different functions must be supported – academics, the arts, athletics, vocational studies, and food service.

The teachers and educational administrators that work in and manage all of these spaces have demanding and important jobs.  We’re committed to making things a little easier by creating building systems that provide comfort and security for each type of space so they can focus on their students.
