Our facility conversations don’t begin with the building – they begin with the student. This student-first approach is what sets us apart from other architectural firms.

Credo's Campus Planning & Architecture division delivers student-success-oriented architectural design and campus planning to transform the student experience, bringing spaces and places in line with mission and vision. Credo began as a Campus Master Planning firm, and from that firm foundation, we have expanded into the comprehensive consulting firm we are today.

Hood College Campus Master Plan

Hood College - Campus Master Plan

In addition to our seasoned higher education architects, each project we execute includes expert student success voices in the planning phases.

As part of our core philosophy, we believe intentionally designed places are aligned with desired perceptions and your institution's people and programs to create an integrated total experience, using the following process:

  • Discovering who your institution is today,
  • Dreaming with you about the vision of a new master plan or building,
  • Defining how to get from today to the future,
  • Designing the appropriate solution, and
  • Delivering a project that will be implemented because it is based on current and future resources and capabilities.

Contact us to start the conversation about enhancing each student's experience through your campus master planning and architecture.

Impact 360 in Pine Mountain, Georgia

Credo is pleased to partner with Impact 360 to complete a Commons Building, Maintenance Facility, Residence Hall, Landscaping, and more. Notice the subtle use of curves and circles in the planning work.

Eric Turner, Director of Operational Services for Impact 360, said that he was surprised at the depth and breadth of detail included in the designs the Credo architects produced.  Mr. Turner said, "I've learned that architects think of every detail--details you don't even know exist! Amazing designs!"

Walla Walla University in Walla Walla, Washington - Bowers School of Business

The Bowers School of Business is a full renovation of 14,800 gross square feet. The existing building was built in the 1930s, with an addition in 1958, and minor renovations in 1999.  The updated facility will create new opportunities for engaging the campus with indoor classroom spaces and outdoor academic opportunities.

The refresh will include over 13,000 square feet of increased learning environments that feature:

  • a high-tech business laboratory
  • an active learning classroom
  • increase in classrooms, seminar, and meeting rooms
  • an incubator room
  • spaces throughout for faculty/student interaction

The addition will contain space for campus and community relations, creating a place where students will learn and grow in an environment that simulates the collaborative team approach needed in the world of business.

This project is moving fast! Connect with us on Facebook and Twitter to see how this exciting design comes to life!
