An existing redundant primary school required an extensive refurbishment and large extensions, in order to provide a dedicated school for pupils with Autistic Spectrum Disorders.
This also included a Post-16 provision to teach life skills preparing pupils for the integration into main stream schools and the wider society.
Key to the success of this project was to hold regular meetings with the end user to incorporate as many requested features as possible. Meetings and discussions on the proposals were held to ensure we delivered a building that was practical and met the school’s requirements.
The project budget was constrained at the beginning with many design changes needed on site to readjust proposals in line with available funds.
We worked closely with the main Contractor to provide information to deliver the project, with value engineering solutions incorporated.
Early consultations helped the early stages of the design process with all Local Authority stakeholders, which provided a smooth application process.
