Chapter Mission

The commitment of the professional membership has been the key to the success of the Association for Learning Environments. We must now build on this tradition by increasing our membership to include sectors now under-represented within the organization. Increasing membership from the communities we serve to include minorities and urban school personnel.

Chapter Lunch Meeting

Wednesday, March 15, 2017
Time: 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

Location: Workman Junior High School, Arlington ISD
701 East Arbook Boulevard
Arlington, TX 76014

How do you make a school better and let the client dream while still maintaining the client's budget? Through a multistep collaborative process, not using a "one fits all approach," the new Arlington ISD Junior High School does just this!

The opportunity for an Architect to sit in the audience with the client and have input in the process at the planning stages reaps benefits when designing the project. Learn how to plan a project involving everyone from the Superintendent, Teachers, Facilities Management, Construction Manager to the Architect.

By sharing and learning together, we all contribute to continuous improvement for the families and communities we serve. Read more >

How have these impacted average school facility dollar cost? How has the industry been impacted with regard to quality of work? How has the industry been impacted by material and product usage?
