Higher Education

All sectors
We design sustainable universities and colleges that provide optimal learning, working and social environments for students and staff.

Higher educational establishments are having to adapt to new, agile ways of learning and become more sustainable and efficient to remain competitive.

We understand the complex challenges our clients face. These can be repurposing existing assets, consolidating and redeveloping surplus space or delivery of net zero carbon strategies. Through our multi-disciplinary service, we can help with these and all aspects relating to the build, operation and maintenance of an educational facility or campus.

Our focus is on delivering low carbon, resilient designs without compromising on comfort and functionality. We provide effective solutions that add value and provide the on-campus placemaking experience students and stakeholders want.
