Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart STEAM Lab

Omaha, Nebraska

To fulfill the goals and criteria of Sacred Heart education and to best prepare their students, Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart is committed to maintaining a future-focused curriculum that includes science, technology, engineering, art, and math (“STEAM.”) This curriculum encourages students to develop artistic, communication, intellectual, and leadership skills. This unique project consisted of renovating two existing rooms located near the library into the STEAM lab.


  • The electrical infrastructure upgrades serve the current and future uses of the space.
  • The ceiling-mounted electrical connector strips with removable cord drops allow for flexibility in workstation arrangement. The cord drops can be hung on the ceiling when not in use.
  • The educational space was designed to be a “learning lab,” so the exposed mechanical and electrical equipment is showcased throughout the room.
  • The design made the room PV-ready, and solar panels were later installed to offset the cost of operating the STEAM lab.

Our team provided MEP and architectural lighting design services on the renovation of the Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart’s chapel and auditorium. Learn more about our additional k-12 education work here.
