Beyond 21st Century Design Collab

The COVID-19 Pandemic is changing how we function daily in every part of our lives.  It has defined new standards of how we engage civically, socially, educationally and in business.  Schools are working with the CDC, their State Departments of Education, School Boards and parents to outline the “new normal” for re-opening schools this fall.

Ron Skyles, AIA, NCARB, Design Manager for Prince Georges County Public Schools, which is the second largest school system in Maryland, has assembled a team of professionals to help schools make informed decisions on how to re-open safely and with appropriate social distancing, while maintaining a quality educational environment.

Rick LeBlanc, AIA, Larry Levato, AIA, Seth Wentz, AIA and Lori Walls of Crabtree, Rohrbaugh & Associates (CRA) have volunteered numerous hours to assist Mr. Skyles and other professionals to develop this new normal.  CRA provided architectural and planning expertise that has resulted from the firm’s experience of designing schools for over 100-years.

The “Beyond 21st Century Design Collab” researched and developed guidelines that will be distributed to school systems Nationwide. The firm is proud to contribute design expertise to such an important endeavor.

CRA has had the privilege of working with the PGCPS since 2014 and is currently completing the William Wirt Middle School replacement project and the Stephen Decatur Special Education renovation/addition project, and other small projects.
