Bond Bryan Architects have made education sector projects the mainstay of its work for 23 years. We work alongside educators in making a positive difference to education outcomes and enhancing young people’s lives.
We’ve developed significant work throughout the UK for schools and academies, colleges and universities – affording us an excellent understanding of your needs.
We have learnt that the most successful solutions have simple, coherent, inspiring concepts that respond easily to non-statutory design guidance – such as The Education Vision, Better Public Buildings, Standard Specification Layouts and Dimensions, BREEAM, Secured by Design, Inclusive by Design, etc.
Furthermore, they are also concepts that intelligently embody statutory guidance including Education (School Premises) Regulations, Building Bulletins including BB98 and minimum design standards, Building Regulations, CDM-C measures, Local and National Planning Policies (MIPPS 01/2009,Technical Advice Note 22) and such like that are explained further below with examples.
Our approach is always, firstly, to listen and ensure that we have fully understood and interpreted the School’s Education Vision and their priorities for improvement.
The solution is driven by the school’s unique ethos and brief to create an open and accessible yet safe secure environment & connect to its woodland setting.
