Schools are moving away from the traditional model of students lined up in rows to a more flexible and collaborative model that encourages the sharing of ideas. But, while learning environments are evolving, what will never change is the need for extracurricular areas that set your school apart.

Auditoriums, gyms, and stadiums remain an integral part of the school experience. With tightening budgets, limited footprints, and the need to accommodate multiple activities, planning these spaces can be a challenge.

This is why so many K-12 schools are turning to Irwin. Our teams will work closely with you to create flexible solutions that are comfortable, easy to maintain, and engineered to last. This includes:

  • Fixed and modular seating solutions
  • Easy-to-deploy telescopic seating
  • Custom solutions that bring out your school spirit
  • A diverse range of materials, shapes, and colors
  • Durable options that are easy to clean, move, and store

As challenging as the shutdowns have been, schools are taking advantage of the situation with a much-needed renovation or new building project.

Ready to give your students and staff a better seating experience? Reach out to our team today and let’s discuss your next project.
