Thinking Buildings Helping Schools

School Feasibility studies is a major part of Thinking Buildings Education portfolio. Over the years, we have gained significant expertise and experience in Building Bulletin analysis (working out shortfalls and surpluses in school accommodation) and preparing options for school expansion and growth in primary, secondary and post 16 accommodation. The image shows a project completed for Oxfordshire Country Council and the Diocese of Oxford. This included a new foundation unit (as pictured), integrated nursery, key stage 2 classrooms, hall expansion and staff room. The project originally derived from the work we did as part of a feasibility study to investigate expansion on a constrained site. This type of work has really grown within the practice, and we are currently working on a further 2 primary and 4 secondary and Post 16 projects feasibility projects. One current project, located in the East Midlands, is fast approaching a planning submission for £6 million plus of new buildings and accommodation. We would be delighted to talk to any schools considering the amount, suitability and condition of their existing buildings – Please get in touch with our Director, Darren Aspinall, who is our practice Education lead. #education #schools #thinkingbuildings
