With population growth comes the need for new buildings, and one of the more popular construction projects as of late is schools. Because there’s always a rush to complete schools to serve students as quickly as possible, contractors are trying to determine the most efficient way to build.
According to the Houston Chronicle, more school districts are choosing “prototype designs” in order to get the structure up quickly. Additionally, this can save hundreds of thousands of dollars in architecture fees and mockups, which could be good for districts struggling with budgets. However, critics have suggested that this new way of doing things has caused schools to lack an identity from others in the area. Logo Mats can set your school look apart from others.
While a prototype design may have people concerned about individuality, there are a lot more things that could be affected by a school’s design. Interestingly, a report last year suggested that school design could affect a student’s overall performance by as much as 25 percent, according to Wired.
There are a lot of things you can do to personalize a learning environment. For starters, putting your school name and mascot all over the walls and entrance mats can be a great way to add personalization. You may want to also consider painting the hallways school colors.
