Responding to education sector challenges

Our work is characterized by the delivery of well-designed buildings and infrastructure shaped by a profound understanding of the educational requirements of each individual establishment. Drawing on our local relationships and knowledge and global expertise, we support schools, universities, local authorities and government bodies in meeting the high standards demanded by today’s students while responding to the challenges of increasing budgetary constraints, our ever growing reliance on technology and the impacts of climate change.

Sustainable academic infrastructure

We design sustainable academic buildings that are healthy, safe and fit for purpose, and where a positive and productive atmosphere contributes to improved student attention by ensuring high levels of comfort, air quality, day lighting and acoustics. Our buildings are the catalyst for educational transformation where student outcomes are paramount.

It is not just about buildings; our transportation specialists develop safe and healthy ways for children to travel to school while reducing traffic congestion and pollution. In addition to designing inherently low-energy buildings we consider the environmental impact of educational facilities on their surrounding areas, addressing issues such as water, materials, ecology and land use.

21st Century learning environments

Whether our involvement is in a new build or the modernization of existing facilities, we work closely with our clients to develop flexible learning environments adapted to our increasing thirst for knowledge and the rapidly evolving needs of the 21st Century.  Above all we are committed to delivering sustainable solutions which support academic aspirations and help educational institutions attract and retain students and staff.
