Wold Architects and Engineers (Wold) is pleased to announce that educational planner Josh Grenier, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, has moved from the firm’s Minnesota headquarters to its Colorado offices, where Wold’s K-12 design practice continues to expand. 

Grenier, who has been with Wold for five years, specializes in K-12 educational facilities with a concentration on integrating the design process with community partnerships. He has successfully teamed with Minnesota and Colorado districts in master planning, school renovations, and designing and planning new facilities and additions. He also has guided districts through the bond and referendum process.

Grenier brings a unique “insider” perspective to Wold’s educational design practice as he began his career as a high school art teacher in Minnesota. “Josh’s educational background is evident in his approach to educational planning, as he is well aware of the priorities and challenges that districts face in designing new spaces that are efficient, conducive to learning, and a good fit for the school community,” said Denille LePlatt, Senior Director with Generation Schools Network, who previously worked with Grenier through a master planning process as superintendent of the Primero School District. “He understands how schools work, and offers valuable expertise in the design process. He is an educational partner, and guides the district in making the best decisions for students, as students have always been at the heart of his work.”   

Grenier has master’s degrees in both architecture and education from the University of Minnesota. He has also been involved with Habitat for Humanity for more than 10 years.
