Creating A Better Learning Environment
AMT offers creative solutions for facilities serving all levels of education, keeping in mind the unique requirements of students at each level. We have professionals that can help you with planning, phasing, site and transportation design, environmental, and landscape architecture. Minimizing disruptions to student life and using construction as learning opportunities for students are frequent considerations.
Brand New or Bigger, We Can Help
More than 100 schools in the mid-Atlantic region have counted on AMT for engineering services for their school construction projects. Be it brand new schools, modernization, additions, safe access or maintenance and repair, our multi-disciplinary staff identifies and accommodates the unique needs of each K-12 and higher education client. We assist schools on sensitive environmental and water resource considerations, utility and structural capacity, topography, and project phasing to avoid class disruption.
We are proud to be an industry leader in preparing safe and meticulously planned school designs that are permitted on time and allow construction to begin promptly.
In addition to applying our core services to academic buildings, parking lots, utilities infrastructure and landscape design, some of the design elements we address that are unique or particularly important to K-12 facilities include:
- Safe Access
- Parent and Bus Drop Off Areas
- Pedestrian and Vehicular Circulation
- Tot Lots and Playgrounds
- Environmental Learning Centers
- Portable Classrooms
- Outdoor Classrooms
- Athletic Fields/Facilities
- ADA Compliance/Special Needs
Higher Education Campuses
The engineering needs and design considerations of college and university campuses can differ greatly depending upon how urban or rural a school is. A campus may be particularly contained or notably divided by streets, and the owner may have available land for expansion or be limited to a small area by densely established surroundings. Having completed projects and tasks on more than 30 different campuses, we can apply our deep knowledge accordingly. For example, our work on campuses in the District of Columbia and in Baltimore often requires traffic analysis and planning, thoughtful parking solutions and extensive agency coordination. Meanwhile, our efforts for campuses located in smaller communities can allow for more generous campus expansion.
