Educational Facilities

Our TeamEducational facilities are becoming increasingly specialized. Today, even the traditional idea of a "classroom" as an instructor-focused learning space is changing. The growth of computer-based instruction, video projection, and telecommunication requirements is causing us to rethink traditional educational patterns, spatial relationships and facilities. ECF specializes in providing a total educational solution, from clean air to high-tech AV wiring.

Examples of projects our employees have participated in or had direct relevant and lead technical experiences include the following:
