Regardless of project size, with i-architect you will get a project architect experienced in design for education, working on your project at all stages.
We offer initial consultations and assessments for schools considering improving their facilities.
For nurseries, primary and secondary schools looking to create accommodation to support high quality education delivery we have the experience and resources to meet complex requirements and to deliver projects on time and in budget.
We understand that schools ad nurseries require spaces that cater for flexible use, deliver healthy and safe environments, considering child protection and access control issues, have low maintenance and running costs, along with offering the ability to integrate special needs within the mainstream. We offer opportunities to create additional educational benefit throughout the design and construction process by including groups of staff and students through consultative workshops and incorporating extra elements which can be used to support many areas of the curriculum from maths, science and geography to art and English.
