An efficient learning environment is a combination of good architecture and efficient engineering designs. While architecture is concerned with the physical aspects of the building, engineering is concerned with the environmental aspects such as temperature, humidity, acoustics, lighting, and air quality.
KES Engineering understands the importance of creating an effective learning environment that is conducive to learning and has successfully designed Mechanical and Electrical systems for educational buildings ranging from K-12 educational facilities to university facilities.
