Finegold Alexander's Principal and K-12 Education Sector Leader, Regan Shields Ives, AIA, ALEP, LEED AP, along with FA Energy Manager, Megan Brown, AIA, CPHD, LEED AP BD+C, share their insights on anticipated trends in educational facilities for 2024 in the Spaces4Learning article.

The article serves as a compilation of predictions for 2024 trends in educational facilities, featuring perspectives from thought leaders in the field. It spans discussions on technology, flexible learning spaces, campus safety & security, disaster response, and more, with a focus on both K–12 and higher-education campuses. Below are Regan and Megan’s thoughts:

“The push to electrify schools is gaining momentum. New financial incentives from the Inflation Reduction Act, as well as local and state initiatives and utility rebates, make it possible for all school districts to take advantage of these opportunities. We are optimistic that more K–12 schools will make this transition as there has never been a better time than now. This is an investment in the health and wellbeing of our students now and for decades to come.”

Our firm is currently assisting schools with electrification studies, including collaborating with CMTA on the Spofford Pond School Electrification Feasibility Study project in Boxford, MA.
