Integrated Design Experts

Our approach to providing expert design services is rooted in the belief that architecture, interiors, planning and branding are essential components to overall project success. We believe disciplines should not be treated as phases that happen sequentially, but should be integrated from day one.

Whether renovation, addition or new construction, Gray Design Group creates vibrant, engaging and forward-thinking educational environments that support each school’s unique curriculum. Project-based learning and STEAM programs continue to shape the built environment and influence inspirational design, providing opportunities for students of differing abilities to thrive.

Flexible classrooms and furniture are critical to encourage active exploration, collaboration and hands-on learning. Reimagining centralized commons spaces and connector areas, simplifying wayfinding and incorporating integrated branding and graphics are additional components that enhance the experience for students and teachers alike. Safety and security solutions, addressing everything from active intruders to natural disasters to pandemic precautions, are a top priority in educational spaces.

Gray also has a wealth of experience in creating successful master plans that identify future needs, assess current conditions, estimate costs and fund desired improvements. No two school districts are alike, and each master plan should be uniquely formulated for the specific district’s needs. We follow a tested process and approach for producing an effective master plan that can serve the district as a roadmap for decades.
