We are leaders in the higher education sector, consistently creating inspiring learning environments. Gavin Elliott, head of education
Designing for higher education continues to form a significant proportion of our work. Education is increasingly recognised as a primary catalyst for social and economic development and this is reflected in our growing portfolio of projects.
We create student centred learning environments that promote interaction and address a range of needs from general teaching hubs through to specialist faculty buildings.
Our commitment to a user centred design ethos, our very strong sense of place and the adoption of innovative design technologies, such as design for manufacture assembly and low carbon timber structures, has continued to see our workload flourish.
We have been shortlisted as a finalist in the Low Carbon Leader and Collaborative Firm of the Year categories of this year’s NCE100 Companies of the Year Awards.
