GHA: Engineering the Future of Education

Educational institutions stand at the intersection of tradition and innovation, shaping the leaders of tomorrow. At GHA, we understand that educational institutions, from K-12 districts to higher learning campuses, are more than just physical structures. They are pivotal centers of growth, discovery, and progress for teaching and learning.

We proudly contribute to this dynamic landscape as site design specialists, embracing the diverse nature of educational institutions. Our experience spans enhancing athletic fields, optimizing pedestrian pathways, and coordinating comprehensive multi-campus improvements. With every project, we incorporate that experience to allow for safe and efficient traffic flow, ensuring a seamless blend of function and design that supports the daily operations of the institution. We uphold a commitment to a high standard of service, serving as a reliable partner to educational institutions.


GHA’s impact on K-12 education is evident in our trusted relationships with more than 40 northern Illinois school districts. We excel in streamlining project funding that yields upgraded, functional facilities that adapt seamlessly to the growing demands of schools.

For more than 15 years, GHA has had the privilege of providing civil engineering services to Lake Zurich Community Unit School District (CUSD) 95. We tackle complex factors like drop-off/pickup traffic operations, onsite wetlands, stormwater improvements, and the modernization of infrastructure within confined spaces. Our team thrives on finding innovative solutions that embody efficiency.

The range of our contributions includes athletic improvements such as synthetic turf replacement and stadium infrastructure upgrades. Site enhancements span from parking lot reconstruction to strategic planning for future expansions. This partnership with Lake Zurich CUSD 95 exemplifies our dedication to the educational landscape and underscores our passion for delivering tailored solutions.
