Education & Athletic Facilities
Creativity is built from the ground up. From preschool to graduate school, we know students and teachers are at their best when they have environments where they can learn, create, and grow together. It all begins with a partner who will take your vision for meeting the needs of your students and teachers and craft solutions that inspire them to dream big.
We help districts across Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas, and Colorado create school site plans that speak to these values because we share them: helping you nurture the citizens of tomorrow is the kind of legacy we’re proud to leave.
Safety and accessibility have never been more critical, and financing projects can be complicated. We’re here to help – before ground-breaking and long after ribbon-cutting, Lamp Rynearson will be there to help you create the school facility you’ve imagined.
With time comes change, and ensuring your district facilities meet the needs of tomorrow means planning for new challenges. Lamp Rynearson’s professionals are skilled and sincere planners, helping you understand your district’s needs and make informed decisions for school sites through layout and master planning.
Ensuring equity across schools is essential, and strategic amenity design can help ensure every student has access to facilities that help them grow. From playgrounds to sports facilities to school grounds, Lamp Rynearson can help you give students opportunities to shine.
As with all school amenities, every detail counts. Our professionals consider each step of a user’s experience to create safe, accessible, and sustainable facilities – all while remaining cost-effective.
We’ll partner with you to help your district respond to capacity needs, population growth, and infrastructure replacement so you can remain compliant with federal and state guidance – all while providing a healthy, safe, accessible, and encouraging environment for students and staff.
When communicating with the public about your upcoming improvements, there’s nothing more helpful than having a knowledgeable, available partner there to support you. Lamp Rynearson’s planning, design, and construction experts help schools connect with parents, stakeholders, and the public to communicate about upcoming improvements or changes and, where needed, incorporate feedback into solutions.
When it’s time to get funding for your project, our professionals are ready to apply their experience applying for grant monies or supporting bond proposals. We’ll help you gather the information you need, talk about your project, and provide high-quality deliverables to illustrate just how impactful your project will be for students, staff, and your community.
Athletic facilities bring communities together and give athletes a place to grow, train, and perform. From football to soccer to softball and baseball, Lamp Rynearson’s athletics professionals build state-of-the-art turf, track, and grass sports facilities for school districts across the Midwest. Proud members of the American Sports Builders Association (ASBA), our professionals stay on the cutting edge of the facility, turf, and track design so you can be confident your facility is safe, accessible, and built to last season after season.
When examining multiple options and assessing their relative advantages and disadvantages our engineering professionals collaborate with owners and municipalities to devise a game plan for athletic facilities, seating, support buildings, and parking.
Designing athletics facilities that are flexible, functional, competitive, efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable through thoughtful master planning and visioning mitigates challenges and improves operational efficiency. From complete master planning to visualizing experiences to wayfinding solutions our professionals cover the bases to bring your vision to life.
We’re dedicated to creating connected access from parking, ticket entry, concessions, and seating to state-of-the-art facilities for fans and athletes to enjoy their best player experience. We believe in the lasting effects of these community-changing facilities and the opportunities they provide to students, coaches, community members, and families.
Through stakeholder engagement, we’re able to proactively consider the needs and desires of the project, owners, and users. By listening, collaborating, and informing we develop connections, trust, confidence, and buy-in for your project’s key initiatives.
Through coordination with athletic facility contractors and material suppliers, we can provide real-time cost, data, and scheduling to ensure project viability and meet desired deadlines. The funding process is an ongoing and iterative component of any successful project that begins with schematic design and ends with the certificate of completion.
Our team of engineers and construction observers are trained problem solvers, ready to keep clients and owners well informed and the project moving forward. We recommend having observation on the project so that the work is completed in accordance with the contract documents while seeing the project across the finish line.
We are proud to partner with these school districts to bring state-of-the-art facilities and improvements to our communities.
