WRA Architects is a Full Service Architectural Firm


Master Planning

Projecting your District's needs from both an enrollment and instructional basis for the next 10-15 years provides a clearer vision of the long-term use and layout of your facilities. 

Design

WRA Architects advocates contemporary architectural thought, that is to say, leveraging current technology and discovery in every aspect of designing a building.

Facility Assessment

We assist school districts with technical evaluations of existing facilities, helping to assess the effectiveness and usability of current facilities. 

 

Bond Election Promotion

WRA Architects has extensive experience in bond planning and election promotion. We have a 95% success rate in helping dozens of school districts on more than 50 bond elections in the recent years. Our process includes pre and post bond surveying, voter demographics, website development, social media, email and text campaigns, videography and photography along with a full communication plan.

 

Next Generation Learning

At WRA, we understand that the Next Generation school must respond to the fact that students are individuals and that they learn in different ways, at different rates. Students are stimulated by variety, and the school environment must enhance the learning experience, not be a hindrance. WRA is committed to incorporating best practices in our schools, and our firm is responsible for developing some of those best practices.

Sustainability

WRA has been strongly committed to sustainable and energy efficient building designs since long before the current popular emphasis. We consistently design buildings that are highly energy efficient, significantly reducing our clients' energy costs over the life of the building. We have LEED Accredited Professionals on staff and are experienced in several Sustainable Design scoring systems.

Technology

WRA designs all projects 100% in 3D Building Information Modeling (BIM), and has been doing so for more than a decade. BIM gives you a full color interactive 3D model of your building linked to a database of the building components. In the design stage, highly realistic design concepts can be viewed by your Facilities Committee to help build consensus among your stakeholders. Upon project completion, we provide CAD files for your use in AutoCAD or whichever CAD software your District prefers. Our 3D BIM model is also available.
