Lottery Bid Design Proposals

School Extension 01

School Building Design

We supported a local school with fast track design work for their funding bid to build a new teaching block.

School Extension Brief

Our brief was to work with the headteacher and governors to develop fast track design proposals to support a lottery bid.

The bid had progressed a bit more quickly than they had anticipated and so we had only three weeks to work together on the proposals.

Some parts of the brief were already very specific, such as the number of rooms and overall programme. But other bits were free to explore in our discussions.

School Extension 02

Lottery Funding Bid

The purpose of the design was to build on the school’s reputation as a hub for creative subjects. An important part of the brief was that the space should be able to work out of hours and over weekends. It would act as a local centre for the arts, music and digital design.

School Extension 03

Off Site Fast Track Construction

Key to the bid for funding was that the scheme must be able to be built and delivered efficiently. We proposed a fast track method with off-site construction for most of the parts of the building. It could then be assembled and put in to use over the 8 weeks of the school summer break.
