This weeks Remodelling Education Conference and exhibition was a great success, especially if you consider that this was the first year the organisers have run this format. The atmosphere was very positive, despite the current uncertainties over funding for schools projects, with a lot of talk about new opportunities. The Architects4Education stand was very busy and we talked to a lot of people interested in our track record and collaborative working. The conference was also a good platform for us to show our ability to create high quality learning environments through remodelling and refurbishment as well as new buildings.
A particularly relevant project to the theme of remodelling was Northbury School, designed by Greenhill Jenner. In July this year the project was “Highly Commended” by the British Council for School Environments in the category of Best School Extension, Refurbishment or Remodel, and also won a 2010 RIBA award.
