Working with Carillion, the Education Funding Agency and three individual schools to develop designs for a mix of new build and remodelled accommodation to replace outmoded learning spaces and associated school site facilities, as part of the Midlands PF2 batch, won in competition.
All three of the schools follow the principles of a superblock with teaching spaces wraping around central dining, performance and hall spaces. Each of the schools includes a separate community sports hall and associated changing.
Plantsbrook School in Sutton Coldfield is a 1600 place school on a tight site with a well recognised provision for visually impaired students.
All three schools share a common construction methodology and detailing whilst retaining their unique character through project specific elevational features and internal adjacencies.
