Eric Dufek AIA, LEED AP
Learning Environments Studio Director : Principal
Growing up my parents were educators, allowing me to observe the impact an educational space can make on learning. Throughout my career, I have worked with over 50 school districts and 185 different projects, helping schools achieve 21st Century learning spaces with both new and existing facilities. As Director of the Learning Environments studio, I assist clients in solving their facility needs through creative and budget-conscious solutions. Through the process of discovery, I work closely with administration, staff, and students to help realize an effective and progressive design that addresses educational needs and incorporates the correct tools at each phase. As an architect, I naturally enjoy taking things apart and putting them back together. I apply this to my personal life as an avid do-it-yourselfer, I enjoy completing odd projects on my vehicles or around the house.
"I was impressed with Eric's vision and his ability to incorporate flexibility in our spaces, allowing us to effectively adapt our curriculum needs of students for future generations."Ted Neitzke, Former Superintendent, West Bend Joint School District
