School districts are demanding project-based learning environments that use a combination of extreme flexibility and the latest technology to support different styles of learning, says Daniel R. Mader, AIA, REFP, LEED AP, CEO of Fanning Howey.

“There’s a lot of pent-up need out there, but educational communities are waiting for more proof of a recovery,” says Mader. “There seems to be more optimism for being able to address capital needs in 2013.”

High on school districts’ list: energy-efficient design to lower O&M costs. +
