Needs Assessment

Experienced PlanSCAPE® professionals recognize no two schools are exactly alike.

That’s why we don’t use a “one-size-fits-all” approach to furniture and equipment packages for existing schools or school construction projects. Instead, we work with you to expertly assess your school’s individual needs and requirements.

A thorough PlanSCAPE needs assessment includes an evaluation of your school’s learning environments (traditional classrooms, tech labs, libraries, music rooms, art rooms, office and administrative areas, etc.); space-planning challenges; furniture and equipment preferences; and delivery and installation deadlines.

Our PlanSCAPE needs assessment takes a load off your shoulders. With PlanSCAPE, you get the assurance that your school’s FF&E requirements have been comprehensively analyzed. And with Virco’s huge product inventory, there’s the added advantage of great lead times for thousands of furniture and equipment items.

Identifying your school’s unique product requirements will enable the PlanSCAPE team to help you find the FF&E solution that’s right for your school.

"An Excellent Solution"

“We used PlanSCAPE to furnish one of our district’s newest school buildings and had a great experience. Because this three story building had offices and classrooms with different shapes and requirements, we couldn’t use a “cookie-cutter” template to purchase furniture and equipment. Instead, the individual-room PlanSCAPE layouts offered an excellent solution.”

“Our Virco representatives were very patient and accommodating when we asked for revised layouts to see how different products would work in our rooms. They always turned revisions around quickly and were ready to answer our questions.”
