The right spaces foster learning, provides a better environment for teachers, and other goals that are specific to your District. These goals are what drive our efforts.

At Veritas we specialize in rural districts. We love the challenge of weaving design with the needs of the overall community while serving an educational purpose.
As architects, we have the depth and breadth of knowledge in many facets of the building process that individual contractors may not. We see the big picture and are able to manage the process of projects big or small by leveraging relationships we have with our most trusted construction partners.
We keep our egos well in check and don’t aim only for the glamorous and hi-profile projects. We want to be in the trenches with you as you navigate some of the basic aspects of maintaining your rural educational facilitates.
