Space Planning

We apply the experience we have developed as a team over forty years to ensure we optimise the use of space in the buildings we help create. Getting the right brief for space, based on a proven methodology that uses a detailed bottom-up assessment of how each space will be used is how we ensure that our briefs will work and every square metre of new space will contribute to the success of future buildings.

Our education space planning work is led by Peter, Grace and Michael.  Grace has a PhD in Education Space Management and wrote the current Further Education space planning guidance whilst working at the Department for Education.  Between us we have conducted space planning exercises at over 50 colleges, universities and schools with a combined area of nearly one million square metres.

In the 11-18 school sector we have deployed our understanding of BB93 and BB103 space guidance for a range of independent schools, Local Authority, and Governments.  We bring the experience we have in running colleges, managing MIS teams and making buildings work, to ensure that our space planning advice is both technically sound and operationally grounded.

We have completed space planning analysis for every estates strategy we have written as well as bespoke pieces of work for the States of Guernsey, Hampshire County Council, Hampshire Futures, The Anglo-European Chiropractic College, Berkhamsted School, The Dixie Grammar School, and The London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
