An architect can often play a pivotal role in successfully delivering high performing school buildings and desirable educational spaces.  Our knowledge and use of modern methods of construction, BIM and intelligent design, together with our in depth understanding of leading construction principles such as Passivhaus and BREEAM, allows us to talk the same language when discussing the best form for a project to take.

Architect doing calculations

We have a strong history of working collaboratively where architects are involved to help create the optimum building solution that integrates and respects the local environment.  Our approach to building exploits the efficiency and cost benefits of our methods, while at the same time understanding the critical need for the architectural team to develop building designs that are uplifting and bring a sense of wellbeing to the school as a learning environment.

The most important part of any collaboration is the relationship, which is forged early on during the design process.  By the time construction begins, the full support and commitment of the main contractor to deliver a building that meets the ambitions and aspirations of the school and its management/governor team is required.  Our passion for being the best ensures that we deliver school building solutions that are to the highest quality standards in terms of finish, performance and impact on the environment.
