Planning and delivery of school places

As the pressure on school places increases in urban areas, it is becoming more difficult to predict and plan.  Funding and land availability is ever more constrained, and alongside academisation and reduced resources, local authorities are finding their statutory role more difficult to deliver.  The government has driven efficiencies by the centralised delivery of new and re-built schools via standardised design, specification and procurement but it is becoming difficult for all government bodies to minimise construction costs in a rising market. 

Our solutions build on extensive experience of working for local and central government across a wide range of programmes, providing a multi-disciplinary approach to strategic planning, design and management of delivery.  These approaches are focussed on maximising certainty, assuring delivery and minimising cost for our government clients.  Our sustainable solutions are aimed at achieving the best financial, environmental and social objectives, and always to support better learning outcomes. 

Our services include:

  • Pupil place planning
  • Strategic solutions that minimise the need for school places, and help local authorities to work collaboratively with Trusts
  • Capacity and programme support to government bodies
  • Multi-disciplinary building design and engineering services
  • Programme and project management services
  • Cost management and strategic procurement services
  • Commercial solutions that support cross-funding school building with value driven from commercial development
  • Supporting local authorities to help their schools maximise asset compliance and operational efficiency.
