Dartmouth Academy required the development of an all through school utilising a combination of existing and new build facilities. The project offered some challenging opportunities to develop transitional learning spaces between upper and lower age groups, providing a pathway for student development through distinct educational phases.
To facilitate these new learning spaces we worked with a staff group through our Activate programme at LearnSpace. This enabled staff to trial different furniture layouts, desk sizes and seating options. This gave staff some real experiences beyond the drawing board through which they were able to effectively inform the design process.
For the Academy we provided the lead contractor and architect an integrated service offer of education, ICT and FF&E support through the bid process through to financial close.
