    Interesting report published today by RIBA evaluating school design in the UK.
    Some really intersting stuff – see extract below:

    The RIBA believes the Government should review how the current generation
    of centrally planned school building projects is working. The new approach
    adopted by the Government when it established the EFA has succeeded in
    delivering schools to incredibly tight budgets, but it has also proved to be
    hugely restrictive in terms of the design and timeframes allowed for the
    construction of new schools. This one-size-fits-all approach means that
    opportunities to innovate or respond to local context to optimise investment
    are being curtailed. With the right reforms, the results could be much better.

    At the heart of our argument is our belief that giving the teams designing
    and building new schools greater flexibility will enable future schools to
    benefit from the expertise of the professionals involved.

    top marks for frank?

    ‘Celeb’ watch…

    Jason Bradbury is a governor at LDE UTC!

    Also, an avid tweeter. Maybe not at this stage but definitely some good social media opportunities in the future.

    Mulberry UTC achieved a major milestone with Planning Approval on 22nd March. Considering the size of the scheme it was touch and go with neighbours Right-to-Light issues. And you cant really blame them, but good news all the same.

    If you can work out how to do this, worth watching at double the speed, its a bit slow otherwise…

    Interesting article about student the rise of luxury student residential. It talks about Coventry in particular so is relevant to what we are doing at Godiva Place

    With discussion about office improvements and potentially new offices in the not distant future I thought that this was an interesting article about office design – google getting a bit of grief – and judging by the images, I do tend to agree.

    Interesting article here on Ash dieback, still a tree to avoid specifying and looks like this isn’t going to change any time soon.
