Explaining how to realise the potential of your buildings and give them – and your school – a new lease of life.
Why do so many people assume that new schools will be superior to refurbished ones? It’s a surprising assumption when you consider the many excellent examples of buildings that are all the richer for having been built and then changed – perhaps a better term is transformed – intelligently and with all the care and attention that would be lavished on a new building.
With our increasing awareness of the urgent need to shift towards renewable resources, it is an obvious waste to discard structures just because they are old.
