Higher Education

For more than 70 years, LAN has partnered with academic institutions to create learning environments that express their brand and support their academic mission. Today, we continue working with educators and administrators to meet the challenges and demands they face in an increasingly competitive and global market —from aging infrastructure, expanded enrollments, and funding restrictions, to evolving technology and learning trends. As trusted advisors, we are proud that our clients continue to turn to us to meet the varied and ongoing needs of their 21st century higher learning environments.

Our teams offer a broad range of service capabilities backed by decades of experience with the specific design requirements of higher education facilities.  We focus on designing complete and unified campuses that evolve with growing student bodies while preserving the historical and cultural significance of the past. From creating efficient, sustainable, and high-quality buildings to designing the  infrastructure backbone  that powers the environments in which students live and learn, we provide services that touch every part of a modern campus.
