Today, educators face a multitude of criteria for successfully enabling students to thrive academically and be effectively prepared for their futures. 21st century learning encompasses collaboration and community, innovation and creativity, safety and sustainability. This model, combined with the realities and complexities of a world with COVID-19, requires a new approach to campus design.
At Bergmann, we use design to influence positive change and look holistically at the design of physical space and mechanical systems to support the needs of a modern learning and campus experience while prioritizing physical and mental wellbeing. We partner with educators to deliver solutions specific to their needs, listening to and understand the needs of all stakeholders, students, educators, administrators and facility directors, to help you make informed decisions that lead to sustainable environments built with the future in mind.
Collaboration for Effective Solutions
Members of our education practice work closely with team members from across our firm to draw on knowledge and expertise that leads to unique and effective solutions. We leverage our Science, Technology and Industry practice expertise to apply best practices from the laboratory and cleanroom setting in everyday design, providing spaces that encourage collaboration while supporting the latest health and safety guidelines. Additionally, our mechanical, electrical and energy experts have closely studied hazard control protocol established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), to implement strategies for mitigating airborne infections through addressing HVAC and mechanical systems.
Together, Bergmann's design and engineering team members create modern, innovative spaces, following a uniquely responsive, iterative process that results in dynamic and high-performing solutions.
Education clients face the unique challenge of budgets that are either determined by public funding or through other stringent expectations. At the same time, projects in these markets are highly visible and reflect the values of the community. Bergmann designers are experienced at balancing these expectations while delivering dynamic, creative solutions that enhance the local community.
Bergmann professionals provide a full range of building engineering services to the Education market. We partner with clients to design buildings from the ground up or to renovate existing buildings to optimize their use. From mechanical/electrical/plumbing to structural engineering, count on the Bergmann team to develop a building solution that is cost effective while achieving the goals of the project.
Planning services are a cornerstone of many academic initiatives, and today, are imperative to creating an environment that encourages socialization while enabling safe distance. Bergmann professionals have a proven track record of successful stakeholder engagement and master planning, as well as the integration of landscape architecture services. Our comprehensive planning approach delivers results including a long-range and future vision for our education clients.
