Sectors / Education


Working collaboratively with clients and stakeholders, we use our deep understanding of new pedagogies, student experience, wellbeing and future flexibility to create stimulating learning environments.

We design and deliver higher education environments in innovative ways to host online and face-to-face teaching, student support and a multitude of social activities. Our portfolio ranges from academic buildings, specialist and research facilities, libraries and student accommodation to estates strategies and masterplans.

From the big idea to efficient operation, we help universities to adapt to new ways of working and support their commitment to provide world-class education and research in inspirational buildings and spaces.
