Olsson works with clients to develop sites for K-12 schools, charter schools, and higher education institutions, which includes site evaluation and working through the entitlement process.
Student safety is always our priority. We analyze areas surrounding a school to determine if there are additional needs like traffic signals, sidewalks, and street improvements. We design strong, efficient, and safe structures to benefit the learners. We also design safe drop-off and pick-up zones and perimeter fencing.
We work with clients to select the best structural, mechanical, and electrical systems for their project. Our engineers create lighting designs and incorporate technology throughout the classrooms, as well as efficient HVAC systems that provide a comfortable environment within the building(s) to help students focus on learning.
We can help take learning outside too. Ochsner Hare & Hare, the Olsson Studio (the Olsson Studio), brings creativity to our clients. Our landscape architects and the Olsson Studio designers create outdoor classrooms where students can connect with nature.
The Olsson Studio is also an industry leader in field and recreational design. From football, baseball, softball, and soccer fields to tennis courts, tracks, and playgrounds, our expertise extends to extracurricular activities and beyond. Our health-conscious designs provide smarter choices for students and opportunities to be active.
