Last week, the Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s 50th annual conference took place in Chicago.

DPR's Tracy De Leuw attended the conference and reported, "The theme was around strengthening and transforming education. Attendance was at an all-time high, hitting 1,800. In addition to the central theme, the conference highlighted the concept of integrated planning as a sustainable approach. The concepts of building relationships between schools and preparedness for change also resonated throughout the sessions."

He continued, "SCUP is a great platform to catalyze transformational planning in higher education."

Projects within the higher education market require helping college and university customers determine the best strategy for minimizing budget and maximizing results on renovations, upgrades and new construction.

With close to 400 education/classroom space projects completed to date (and growing), DPR is proud to build spaces where teachers can shape young minds. For example, here's one we're currently building in downtown Austin for the University of Texas.
