High Performance Architecture through sustainable design, innovation and technology.
Robust for Today. Flexible for the Future.
Our passion and strength? Creating sustainable learning environments based on your specific program needs and goals. For the last 22 years, Sprotte+Watson’s architectural solutions for education not only support the curriculum needs of today, they’re designed to meet a wide-open future of unknown possibilities. Through the use of adaptive space, integrated with the latest technology, we create powerful, flexible learning environments. The results? Greater levels of learning, stimulating, healthier educational environments, and lower operational costs. All based on S+W’s core values: responsive architecture that enriches educators and learners, while enhancing and protecting the natural environment.
Sustainable Design
Sprotte+Watson’s passion is creating sustainable learning environments that meet two pressing needs – protecting and preserving precious natural resources, while keeping costs manageable for today’s budget realities. Our High Performance Architecture does both. S+W learning spaces are carefully sited and built to take advantage of the sun and prevailing winds, so they’re healthier, naturally lighted and resource efficient. It’s a strategic approach based on S+W’s core philosophy: sustainable, beautiful, and flexible design that’s the New Future for education.

Our powerful solutions offer multiple benefits to students, staff and administrators: long-term durability, resource savings, and considerable cost/benefits of public fund expenditures for our schools and communities.
Interior Design
Creative spaces that inspire kids to love learning. That’s the new, exciting focus of S+W Interior Design. Our studio teams are working more closely with industry architectural leaders to select finishes that are green, durable, and yes, even fun for our District Client interiors! Resulting in engaging, lively spaces learners love, while protecting and respecting the environment. We’re also digging deep to create branding graphics that resonate with students to engage and way-find in their environment, and create a true sense of place. Even better?

With our new three-dimensional interior software, you can now experience the "virtual reality" of any space during the design process, and effectively share the vision with staff, parents and community members.
Redevelopment of Aging Campuses
Got an older campus or facility that’s lost its edge? Breathing new life into old spaces is a Sprotte+Watson specialty. This smart economic strategy lets the S+W design experts reinvent and update your space, while the District capitalizes on the reuse of a property it already owns. Through a careful Master Planning process, S+W can redefine an outdated campus with high-performance learning environments and code-compliant new facilities. Another important benefit? Redevelopment projects are increasingly popular with the public. They not only save money, they also spark renewed community interest and pride, resulting in increased campus populations.
