At frk architects + engineers we design environments to spark learning in ways you never imagined possible.

Working With Us

We help build facilities that enable people to thrive.

We've been Iowa's leading architecture firm focused on education for 100 years. That deep understanding of how people work and learn in public spaces has driven us to provide extraordinary design, engineering and master planning to education, municipal and private sector clients.

We're immensely proud of the work we do and the difference it makes in the Iowa communities we call home.

I was very happy with frk's ability to work hand in hand with the owner and contractor to keep the project within the overall budget. At the end of the $9.5 M project we did not have any change orders...OUTSTANDING. That outcome was a direct result of the accuracy of frk's drawings and communication skills.
