We serve institutions in both K-12 and higher education with a focus on creating sustainable, contemporary learning environments.

K-12 Education

Day by day, our nation’s K-12 schools, face a pressing challenge–the challenge to change–the challenge to provide better learning environments for our children and extend the life of our educational facilities.
At DLZ, we have been responding to this challenge and have achieved a reputation for excellence by designing structures that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional and cost-efficient. To accomplish this, we bring experienced management, design, and technical specialists together as a team, and we encourage active partnering and client participation throughout the design process.

Higher Education

DLZ’s higher education practice is dedicated to meeting the changing needs of our academic clients. We recognize that good architecture incorporates an institution’s goals and objectives of functional and flexible space while creating a dynamic and highly interactive environment for learning. With a history of designing exceptional higher education facilities on time and within budget, DLZ has the experience and expertise to meet the unique challenges of today’s colleges and universities.
