Collaboration. Critical Thinking.

Hands-on, collaborative, real-world learning. This is the higher education experience of today. Learning environments need to be innovative, inspiring and engaging to attract and retain both prospective and current students-- in addition to talented professors and staff-- in a competitive landscape. From student living to student activities and common areas to classrooms, create comfortable, secure and accessible campus environments that enhance community.


Flexibility. Functionality.

Campus design needs to be functional and flexible, inviting and comforting, inspiring and personalized. It must balance acoustics, enhance connections to nature, withstand high traffic and encourage a sense of belonging. Through color, texture and pattern, design can set the tone for a space, creating environments that promote multifaceted learning and an adaptable layout.

Performance. Durability.

Higher learning environments need to be flexible to support a changing educational landscape and to address the needs of multifunctional spaces. Flooring is often an integral part of this solution, defining space in natural and intuitive ways, while also offering a durable, high-performing product that will withstand the demands of a busy campus environment.
