At EUA, we are passionate about what we do. We believe that design has the ability to elevate people's potential. Now, more than ever, our pace of innovation remains ready to serve our clients.
Design Considerations for K12 Facilities Post Pandemic
EUA understands that these are incredibly difficult times for school districts. You and your leadership team confront a series of challenging decision as you grapple with the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic. As your trusted architectural and facilities planning partner, rest assured that we stand at the ready to support your district now and in the weeks, months and years ahead. Like you, protecting the health and safety of your staff and students is always our top priority. This easy-to-use guide explores potential ways school design may be impacted by COVID-19. We outline both initial strategies for modifying existing facilities as well as design considerations for future facility planning.
The guide is focused on seven main areas:
- Learning Spaces
- Building Circulation
- Main Office + Health Room
- Common Spaces
- Staff Resource Spaces
- Other Considerations
As updated CDC, WHO, State and local public health guidance becomes available, we will continue to provide insight and potential design solutions to adapt to those recommendations.
