Learn Better
How do we help educational institutions effectively compete for highly-qualified students, prized faculty, and potential donors?

By creating inviting and secure campus environments that allow students, faculty and staff to flourish in ways that engage both their bodies and minds.

We understand that our clients face fierce competition over a shrinking pool of students, huge financial pressures, and ever-changing educational standards. In response, our planning and landscape architectural services are carefully crafted to help education administrators and facility professionals improve the efficiency, comfort, appearance, safety, neighborliness, and sustainability of their campuses. The Education Design Studio at Hitchcock Design Group is committed to helping educational institutions add measurable value to their learning environments by Creating Better Places® to Learn.
