Prioritizing adaptable solutions

Few firms share Baskervill’s diverse educational project portfolio. As a partner in the work of educational institutions, we get to know each client’s distinctive learning philosophy, operational goals, and strategic plans. We provide programming, feasibility studies, space planning, and campus planning, as well as architectural, engineering, and design services for comprehensive renovations and new build academic and administrative buildings.

Learning environments are not one-size-fits-all and our approach to them isn’t either. In our work with private and public colleges and universities alike, we prioritize durable, sustainable solutions that can adapt and flex as needs change; because learning is a continually evolving endeavor.
