Educational buildings by water


Our educational work spans the public and private sector and addresses learning environments for K-12 and higher education clients across the country. Our team’s experience comprises more than one billion square feet of educational facilities, including programming, campus planning, prototype development, and interior design services, as well as traditional architectural and engineering services for new construction, renovation, and historic rehabilitation projects.  

In all our educational projects we strive to create environments that are innovative and flexible to facilitate various teaching methods and enhance the student learning experience. We fully engage the culture and pedagogy of the educational clients we collaborate with to deliver projects that serve their greater missions, goals, and visions and can transition with institutions as they grow and evolve.


We work with school districts to plan, design, and build 21st century facilities of all scales that serve a broad range of learning styles and student populations. We implement the latest trends and findings in safety, pedagogy, and sustainability into each project to deliver designs that adhere to strict schedule and budget requirements without sacrificing performance. 


Stratus plans, designs, and delivers quality buildings and master plans to private k-12 educational institutions across the country. Our designs enhance the student experience and offer educators, families, and students a safe and enriching place to learn and grow. We have designed auditoriums, dining facilities, classroom buildings, lab buildings, performing arts centers, media centers, athletics facilities, and a variety of miscellaneous administrative facilities.

Higher Education

Our varied building type experience and robust educational practice allows us to service our Higher Education clients with a variety of project types including dormitories, new classroom buildings, medical office buildings, master plans, and many others. We work with colleges and universities to weave their history and vision into each project while looking towards the future of design and educational practices.
