We shape our buildings; thereafter, they shape us. Winston Churchill
The design of any new school must incorporate an integrated security system. This security system must allow for easy identification of all personnel and visitors, more efficient use of video monitoring, integrated alarm systems and electronic access control, while maintaining a healthy, vibrant and exciting environment for learning.
EOP is enhancing security for the Brenda Cowan Elementary School, Lexington’s largest elementary school. Some of the security improvements include: • Installing security alarms to all exterior doors • Upgrading facilities to include cameras, security systems and other enhancements • Securing all vestibules with double-entry access • Employing external vendors to monitor possible threats on social media and other public forums
Great design is a recruiting tool and leads to increased enrollment, engagement & retention Campus identity promotes a sense of culture, pride & place.
Dynamic learning environments promote intellectual curiosity & academic growth. Energetic social spaces promote meaningful student interaction & relationships.
We incorporate affordable, efficient sustainable elements into every project Some projects will pursue LEED certification; others will not. Regardless, we make it a priority for each project to integrate sustainable and energy-efficient solutions. Energy costs are on the rise; we can help you capitalize on all opportunities for energy and cost savings. EOP led the sustainable design effort with Berea Collegeâ€™s Lincoln Hall, the first LEED-certified building in Kentucky, and Bereaâ€™s Boone Tavern, the first LEED-certified hotel [Gold].
Learning spaces are the backbone of the school We design spaces that are conducive to various teaching and learning styles. Our passion is to create dynamic learning spaces that promote curiosity and growth.
General Classrooms We design comfortable and functional rooms from large lecture halls to small classrooms. Flexible Design In some designs, desks give way to tables and chairs for ultimate flexibility. Specialized Classrooms We understand how to design for problem-based learning classrooms or patient assessment suites. Classroom Technology We plan for wireless technologies, include smartboards where possible, and video projection units.

Auditoriums must accommodate a wide variety of users and uses
We work closely with school leaders to create safe, innovative learning environments Weâ€™re committed to creating energetic, efficient environments by listening to you, recognizing project challenges and distilling those ideas into real solutions.
Performing Arts We design scene shop and storage spaces, costume and prop workrooms, dressing rooms, offices and ticket booths. Multi-use Auditoriums We put the emphasis on user need and flexibility so the facility can reach its maximized potential. Media Centers We understand the needs of todayâ€™s modern library. Lecture Halls Our halls seat up to 250 students with state-of-theart technology like multimedia projection systems and wireless Internet.
Student life is enhanced by spaces encouraging interaction and socialization
