Education Projects and Sport


We help education providers of all types who require good value, high-quality design solutions go from underperforming buildings or sites to achieving well-designed and sustainable projects with the minimum of fuss.


We achieve our goals by combining our natural design flair with a technical expertise, supported by our knowledge of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) and Building Information Modelling (BIM), enabling us to deliver innovative and aesthetically-pleasing outcomes.


Our ever-expanding portfolio of education projects comprises work for Government and privately-funded institutions including Free Schools, Alternative Provision and sports facilities. We pride ourselves on our ability to balance high quality design with a pragmatic approach to all education projects, providing varied services at all project stages, either as part of a school, college or university's professional team or as part of a contractor's team in a design and build situation.
