WHAT WE OFFER
Design | Project Management | Strategic Advice
Our in-depth knowledge of pedagogy, academic spaces and next-generation learning environments has allowed us to build a reputation for excellence in educational design. Playing a key role on the government’s ‘Building Schools for the Future’ programme, we are in-tune with the latest educational policy, legislation and implementation. Our experience spans primary, secondary and higher educational facilities, and includes work in both the public and private sectors for mainstream and specialist schools; we are also highly-skilled at simultaneously meeting the requirements of multiple stakeholders, including councils, academies, schools, parents and pupils.
MODERN METHODS OF CONSTRUCTION
We are experts in modern design and construction methodologies, including offsite, modular and flat pack. Working alongside a number of modular housing contractors, we are able to utilise modern building techniques to produce high-quality designs that are almost indistinguishable from a traditional builds. Taking advantage of factory quality control ensures increased performance and shorter time scales – modular buildings can be up to 70% quicker to construct, are flexible to configure and highly sustainable. They also help reduce energy use and resource wastage during construction, and cut carbon emission onsite.
With a growing reputation designing family housing and student residential, as well as prime, private rental and affordable accommodation, we have extensive experience working on small, mid, large-scale projects across the UK and Europe. With a residential portfolio that includes suburban housing developments and regeneration schemes, as well as individual bespoke projects, we have the knowledge and expertise to design high-quality homes that perfectly compliment the lifestyle of the end-user. Utilising our understanding of innovative construction techniques, we can also offer alternative build solutions to reduce programme timescales while still maintaining quality.
