College and Sixth Form
Our experience in the Education sector incudes numerous design projects for college and sixth form clients, from significant new build projects to minor works infill and refurbishment schemes.
We seek to provide low energy use buildings that can significantly reduce running costs, but still deliver the quality design that clients require in what is a highly competitive market.
Learning by doing
We can also evidence experience of working with colleges and sixth forms closer in nature to industry and the workplace. Workshop and practical spaces that provide a ‘Learning by Doing’ environment will attract a wider catchment of potential learners and coupled with a considered design response, both new building and existing buildings can be repurposed in this way to provide accessibility in its broadest terms. Our understanding of how education environments can provide this alternative route to workplace, bridging the gap between academia, research and commercial venture, is illustrated in much of our work in the FE sector.
As with much of our work in the education sector, we have developed Further Education schemes effectively through client engagement meetings to meet with the objectives of local authorities and education bodies, while managing the effective production of deliverables and close monitoring of a scheme development.
Our well established processes ensure the effective coordination of the technical design as part of a collaborative and integrated approach. LSI Architects technical expertise and experience supports our service delivery by the highest standards of competence in technical detailing and co-ordination, including compliance with regulatory standards and best practice.
IN OUR CLIENTS’ WORDS
“I recommend LSI Architects as a team of good designers who go the extra mile to ensure effective communication with their clients. This has been evident in regular fortnightly meetings, and in additional meetings and presentations as requested by me. The strong leadership ethos at the practice is clear at every level.”
