Education

Our education team is passionate about enhancing our education environment for existing and future generations.

Our Expertise

We offer campus optimisation, planning permissions for new education facilities, and purpose-built student accommodation.

Our team excels in navigating complex sites with environmental and heritage designations. Furthermore, we have worked on a large number of schemes to deliver Special Education Needs (SEN) schools for which there is a growing need across the UK. We work closely with our clients to provide students with a suitable education in an environment which is specially tailored to their needs.

We regularly work with education providers to improve their sports offerings for both the schools and the local community. This includes proposals for new sports pitches and variations to existing permissions to allow for extended use of sports facilities. Successful engagement with Sport England as part of the planning application process has contributed to a positive outcome on many occasions.

Collaboration with our Analytics and Research team to assess education needs has been pivotal, whether to inform a planning application for a new school, support S.106 negotiations or support the Local Planning Authority’s Local Plan evidence base.

Our Clients

We have long-lasting client relationships due to our quality work and care in providing services. Our expertise spans both private and public sectors and includes educational developments with schools, colleges, and universities across the UK.

Communications and Engagement

We often lead community engagement, organising public consultation events and meetings with Key Stakeholders to gain their support for education schemes. Being the ‘heart of the community’ we appreciate that education providers' relationship with neighbours is important and the engagement strategy is often fundamental to a project.

Sustainability

As a certified ‘carbon negative’ consultant we are passionate about sustainability. We work closely with education clients to find ways to decarbonise existing estates as well as ensure that proposed applications are as sustainable as possible, meeting the required carbon reduction targets on-site.
