Education

A learning environment that creates a sense of place and fits within the existing or developing context of its campus is a common thread on all our educational projects. Whether planning and designing for primary, secondary, or higher education campuses, Mackenzie focuses on the institution's goals and objectives and prioritizes student well-being. We have designed a variety of facilities, including classrooms, libraries, dining halls, and recreational facilities—achieving each client's desire to develop projects that are cost-effective and reflect their mission and core values. Jeff Humphreys leads Mackenzie's work in this market sector.
