Gateway Technical College
About GatewaY Technical College
The new Forest Edge K-6th Elementary School building was completed for the 20-21 school year. The school districts goal was to provide a safe, effective, and inspiring learning environment for all children. The building design incorporates features to create relevant and empowering learning opportunities.
What We Did
Gateway was remodeling the second floor of their Academic Building right in the heart of the COVID-19 pandemic. EBI was striving to create a safe and productive learning environment for students and faculty during this pandemic, as well as have the space prepared to transition to a more normal higher education environment. We achieved this with use of freestanding room dividers throughout lounge and meeting areas, larger walkways through classrooms that would allow room to expand class sizes in the future, and easily cleanable surfaces for disinfecting. The design and furniture specified allowed Gateway to continue to achieve their academic goals for their students during this uncertain time, and transition to the hands-on industry focused education that has made them so successful for the past century.
