School extensions are an excellent method to offer a better quality of education and experience for students by providing a safer and more comfortable space.
In addition, school extensions can help reduce classroom numbers; allowing more space for students and more attention from their teachers. More spacious classrooms can be a significant improvement, especially for special educational needs (SEN) schools.
Our goal is to create spaces that offer opportunities rather than prevent them, offer community rather than leave individuals feeling isolated and allow for a more focused approach to learning in smaller groups.
We value building long-term working relationships with our clients, consultants and contractors and want to deliver spaces that are functional and aesthetic, supporting and enhancing its users’ education and well-being.
Our Architectural Services offer a complete process (RIBA Stages 0-7) and we’ll work very closely with you to deliver an extension that creates a caring and inclusive environment, delivering the highest levels of accessibility and equipment for your students with special educational needs.
If you have students with Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC), we’re experienced in designing schools and adapting extensions for children with ASC. We’ll discuss with you to understand the spectrum of conditions and anxiety around spaces your students might have in order to create the ideal layout and orientation for you.
Throughout the design process, we will keep you updated using both 2D Architectural drawings and 3D software to give you a clear and engaging experience, allowing you to make informed decisions about your project.
We understand the importance of delivering a complete professional service in the Education sector, especially with regard to SEN. We can provide reports and advice for related projects as well as Project Management Services during the construction of your extension, overseeing and managing different contractors, ensuring that you don’t sacrifice unnecessary time away from your students.
Once your school extension is fully constructed and reviewed, we’ll also provide a tailored-user guide for you, detailing any adaptions or adjustments to help children with SEN/ASC, with a set of As-built drawings and clear instructions on how to Access, Maintain and Operate your new extension.
