Administrative & Other Support Facilities

As a complement to our designs for K-12 schools, STR also designs district administrative centers, both as new buildings and renovations/additions to existing schools. Our administrative centers are welcoming, safe environments for parents and community members to meet with administrative and instructional staff, and STR-designed boardrooms, office spaces, conference rooms, open-office cubicles, and reception areas convey a celebration of learning and student accomplishments. We also design transportation centers, which serve as hubs for school district bus operations. These facilities include driver waiting and check-in areas, space for transportation administrative personnel, and maintenance areas with lifts for vehicle servicing.
