K-12 and independent schools facilities design and construction services
We work side by side with you — and your stakeholders — to build the facilities your students need to succeed.
K-12 and independent school educators and leaders know the importance of their schools’ facilities in order to deliver a first-rate learning experience for students. Yet, securing funding to improve those facilities can be an uphill battle. Not to mention, once your project gets underway you have a range of challenges to consider — from not having the right staff to lead you through a facilities design and construction effort, to staying within budget and adhering to schedules.
Haley & Aldrich’s design and construction team has years of experience navigating the ins and outs of building safe, state-of-the-art education facilities that meet the needs of our clients and their students. We not only bring the experience and knowledge from our past projects, but we work with you to understand your long-term plans and internal systems. This includes getting to know what stakeholders need to be involved in your project, and your risk tolerance. We’re then able to develop a plan specific to your needs, goals, risk tolerance, and budget.
No matter the size or scope of your project, Haley & Aldrich breaks down the subject matter to ensure you — and your school administration and other stakeholders — have a clear, comprehensive understanding of your options and risks. We operate not only as your consultant, but as your partner — working side-by-side with you to deliver a safe, engaging, and educational space for your students.

A whole-team approach to project success
We’re more than standard school building design consultants. And we understand you’re working with a specific budget, have time constraints, and various stakeholders — each with a unique perspective. We take the time to understand not only your needs, but those of school boards, administrators, and government agencies, working closely with all parties to address and overcome conflicting interests. We work alongside your team, regulators, and stakeholders to develop solutions that produce the best possible outcome for your students and school district.
With your internal and external team members on board, we seek creative approaches with a purpose: to help you meet your budget and timelines. For example, for several K-12 and independent school projects we’ve developed field programs that optimize where to drill and test the subsurface conditions of your campus to reduce site characterization costs and schedule, as well as eliminate hidden underground risks. We also review subcontractor bids, including site work and specialty foundation subcontractors, to help you identify allowances or exclusions that could result in added costs.
We provide the following services for the design and construction of school facilities:
- Environmental due diligence
- Foundation design
- Geotechnical engineering
- Geotechnical instrumentation
- Site characterization
- Vapor intrusion
Our technical expertise matched with our collaborative approach will ensure we build the facilities your students need to succeed.
