We create inspiring and engaging learning environments that respond to advances in technology and new teaching methods, whilst providing flexibility for future generations of educators and pupils.

The education sector is rapidly evolving and our team brings in depth understanding of the challenges inherent in all types of education environment, helping to create dynamic, flexible learning spaces and facilities.

From primary and secondary schools with sports and social facilities to higher education colleges and universities with state of the art research facilities, we understand that early engagement with key stakeholders, including teaching staff, students and facility managers, is vital to delivering solutions which respond directly to their specific needs.

Our multidiscipline expertise and experience encompass the design, expansion and enhancement of all types of education facility. Our portfolio includes schools, colleges, universities, research and development facilities, science laboratories, student residences, as well as community amenities such as performing arts spaces, sports facilities, training centres and libraries.

We’ve helped deliver everything from challenging refurbishment and retrofit projects to new build developments incorporating sustainable, future proof designs.

We help design effective and efficient buildings that fully utilise the potential of the space and create stunning learning environments. Our holistic approach to sustainability and low carbon delivery considers the project’s whole lifecycle, climate risk and carbon emissions.

We understand that a building’s design and operation have a significant impact on engagement, well being, attainment and productivity. This is why our designs create buildings which enrich the education experience, supporting sound practices and offering optimal learning conditions.

We deliver schemes that meet high quality, sustainability and energy efficiency standards, providing a healthy and safe environment in which to teach and learn. Our team brings integrated sustainability expertise and design innovation to create buildings with the flexibility and robustness to ensure a legacy for future learners.

“Marlborough Primary School features an ingenious stepped external play-section across the site with a series of cascading ‘garden terraces’ accessed directly from classrooms. This allowed larger communal spaces to be created underneath lit by two central rooflights.”

Featured Project

The Belham School Project

Situated in south-east London, the renewed Grade II listed Victorian building was carefully extended and refurbished to provide a striking modern facility, whilst embracing the history of the original building. Consisting of two blocks, a low brick plinth and a taller Cor-ten block, the school’s beautiful existing features and delicate building fabric were retained, with a remodelled interior shaping the new two-form entry school.

The existing classrooms were divided into three 30-pupil rooms in addition to new staff areas and a studio space, while corridor expansions maximise the amount of light in each classroom, allowing breakout exhibition spaces for each year group’s work to be displayed.

Our team provided building services and structural engineering on this project which completed in March 2018.
