in our client’s words

“We have been delighted with LSIs involvement in our BSF design and build project. They have demonstrated a real understanding of the special educational needs of our pupils and the implications for the learning environment. Their sympathetic and creative approach has resulted in a building that we are all immensely proud of. They were informative and enabled us to understand the processes involved, providing technical information and useful input regarding the scope of works and the limitations of what could be achieved. They responded to our requirements and engaged in constructive and diplomatic dialogue to find solutions.”

Our expertise

The need to design effective environments for pupils with Special Educational Needs is as important as ever. However, there remains very little guidance on how to provide environments either as part of mainstream schools, specialist provisions, or alternative provisions.

Our experience includes a number of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties (SEBD) related projects within the last few years, as well as Pupil Referral Units and Alternative Provision Schools (AP).

We believe the successful design of specialist educational environments culminates in getting the basics right and placing pupil’s needs at the heart of the design. We work hard to understand the specific needs of each educational environment and develop a unique response in conjunction with our past experience.
