We regularly provided architectural services for the 600-pupil independent school and their variety of buildings spread over their 20 acre campus. At the start of our appointment, we identified a critical need to develop a strategic plan for the redevelopment of the school in the long-term, to ensure its facilities were developed in a coherent, sustainable and cost effective way.


Our work involved many hours of consultation and briefing in order to gain a detailed understanding of the school’s operation. This resulted in objective analysis of where improvements could be made which, in turn, led to innovative proposals for the redevelopment of the school and a number of construction projects over a five year period.

APEC took our ideas from concept to reality within a limited timescale, and successfully co-ordinated the project to ensure that the work was completed both on budget and during the crucial summer holiday period.
