Projects: Education

We have a wealth of experience working in the Education sector over the last 25+ years. Our experince ranges from:

  • Major refurbishments of existing Grade I and Grade II Listed Buildings to convert them into Education establishments.
  • Wholesale refurbishments/reorganisation and extensions of school premises on one site to transform single form entry premises into two form entry.
  • New build Nursery, Primary, Secondary, Sixth Form and University projects.
  • Construction of new Specialist Teaching Facilities for ASD.
  • Construction of new Specialist units teaching Animal Management: inc Fish, Tropical, Small Animal, Invertebrate facilities and our first baby Shark tank.
  • Construction of new Specialist units teaching Agricultural, Horticultural, Engineering.
  • New Food Sciences projects nationwide.
  • Traditional Construction techniques.
  • Buildings constructed using Steel Frame and SFS cladding, for speed of construction and reduced cost.
  • New Education establishments utilising offsite construction.

Our contract experience ranges from:

  • Traditional JCT contracts where we are retained as the Client's Architects throughout.
  • Traditional Design and Build Contracts where we are employed as Client's Architect up until Stage C or Stage E and in some instances Stage F1 and then novated over to the successful Contractors Team to complete the Build.
  • Design and Build Contracts where we are working as Design adviser for a Contractor; either where the Contractor has already been appointed, or where a tender bid is being submitted.
  • Architects working as part of Offsite Construction Contractor's Team.

We have over fifteen years experience working as Architects for an Offsite Construction Contractor delivering Schools, Sixth Form Centres and Academies less traditionally, this method of construction means that we can cut the design and delivery period for a new School by anything from six months to up to one year. This is becoming a more favoured method of delivering educational projects faster and in some cases to a reduced construction budget. (This method of construction also lends itself to Student Accommodation, Healthcare and Commercial Office Construction).

We are on the Shared Business Services [SBS] Construction Consultancy Framework.
