We can point to extensive experience of supporting clients in making the most of their estate. Along the way, we have learnt a great deal – above all, that every client is different. In fact, this is where we believe that our experience has most to offer, we can understand what is special about your university and propose unique, innovative solutions to meet your specific needs. Moreover, we can offer a wealth of experience in education; we understand the diversity of the HE sector and are as comfortable when talking about education as we are about architecture.
“I have worked with Bond Bryan for over twenty years on Education schemes at both the University of Sheffield and previously at Sheffield Hallam University. They have proved to be excellent architects with the ability to engage with the client, who usually are new to major projects, and skilfully develop a brief that meets their aspirations with vision and flair”.
David Briggs, Project Manager – The University of Sheffield.
The experience of being a student should be central to defining the learning environments of the future.
Our development frameworks provide a structured dialogue with universities to define what a student-focused experience means in terms of: what spaces best support the students’ vision, how should those spaces be best arranged to create a thriving learning community and how much space do the students need.
