Education

We know that well-designed educational environments foster engagement for a child’s journey from kindergarten through post-secondary, and give students the space to unleash their full potential. We do everything in our power to create these inspired environments.

The Arrow team has extensive experience in the design of educational facilities for school divisions and post-secondary institutions across Alberta. We have an in-depth understanding of the shared goals and common interests of all parties involved—to create nurturing spaces which focus on and enable the care, safety, and development of our children, young people and lifelong learners.

We understand that comfortable and safe environments are non-negotiable, and that a learning environment shapes and enhances a students’ educational experience, while a poorly designed one can detract from it. We design environments with the end-user in mind, taking into consideration the unique requirements of the intended occupant—from a kindergarten classroom to a lecture hall.

Where required, we incorporate sustainable design elements into schools; we understand that these facilities are high-use, and intended to serve their communities for years to come. It is of the utmost importance that educational environments are designed for evolution, and continuously move with the needs of students and emerging technologies. We strive to ensure that our spaces are designed to manage high use, last for a long time, and have the option of future expansion.
