Besides launching a New Year, January also marks the relaunch of an invaluable tool and resource for anyone building, modernizing, repairing or researching education facilities: SchoolDesigns.com.
As the largest compilation of award-winning and other outstanding school and university construction projects, the relaunched site includes improved search functionality on almost 4,000 projects — the largest online collection of education construction projects.
Now, anyone on the school building team — superintendents, business officials, presidents, board members, facility managers, architects, planners, volunteers and more — have a one-stop resource to peruse recently completed projects for ideas, trends, cost data, plans, pictures, amenities and more that can be mined for current or upcoming projects.
Visitors can review the work of hundreds of education architecture firms; find design professionals and service providers in their area that specialize in the type of work they are looking to do; identify products included in projects that are of interest; view showrooms of companies that supply products to produce more effective learning environments; discover the latest education construction and design news and developments; and much more.
The rich search functionality enables you to transition from perusing unrivaled data on thousands of projects, to identifying concepts that can be used in projects, to finding design professionals that are on the cutting edge, to locating innovative products and seeing how they fit into a facility, to exploring showrooms that include other products and services tailored for education, to linking directly to a company or design professional.
In the near future, SchoolDesigns.com will include additional resources, such as video tours of facilities, as well as interviews with the administrators and architects that brought these projects to life.
Be sure to take advantage of the vast data available at your fingertips — visit the new SchoolDesigns.com today.
