Krech Ojard's education clients fall under two categories, K-12 (which includes early childhood facilities, elementary and high schools), and Higher Educational institutions. Each has unique requirements for the students they support and these needs are reflected in the design, space and material solutions, and code and accessibility adherence.

Krech Ojard has a strong past working relationship with many Minnesota schools and universities and takes pride in the relationships that have been built with school officials. These working relationships get stronger over time and lead to a better understanding of unique facility standards. Familiarity within these systems leads to faster design solutions that better fit requirements of the institution.
