Higher Education institutions today are faced with the increasingly complex challenge of providing students, faculty and staff with an environment that fosters innovation and learning in an ever-changing world. Our design experts understand these challenges and know that the most successful solutions deliver on these while embodying the institution’s mission, values, and people. We design solutions to enrich campus life and support individuals, allowing campuses to educate students for fulfilling careers and prepare them with the skills for meaningful lives to serve their communities.
Bergmann planning and design strategies weave campus elements together with the spaces between and within buildings to encourage scholarship and engagement, and incorporate expertise from practice areas across our firm from which campuses can benefit, including lab planning, research and workplace design. This holistic, interdisciplinary approach is a collaboration between our broad base of experts and campus stakeholders to connect place, building and students.
Campus planning respects the campus heritage and optimizes assets. Classrooms provide flexible technology-rich facilities for teaching, learning and creating in ever-changing ways. Science buildings accommodate ever-changing lab technologies and use social spaces to encourage spontaneous interactions between students and faculty. Student centers and housing enhance student life and extend the learning experience beyond the classroom. Campus Infrastructure is considered for optimizing resources, fulfilling sustainability goals, and maximizing future opportunities.
Our dedicated team of higher education experts design with collaboration and purpose, and will work closely with your decision makers and end users to create inspirational spaces that allow them to teach, learn, create and thrive long into the future.
