By providing students with the right conditions for learning, our work can even lead to better exam results.
Our experience in this sector includes work for universities, technical colleges, secondary schools and primary schools. These projects range from providing building services for workshops, a multipurpose lecture theatre, teaching spaces and resource areas at Leigh University Technical College in Kent to more specific challenges like the new library at Culford School.
This impressive building, set in a historic environment, includes significant areas of glazing that create a particularly open and light feel. We called on all of our experience here to achieve the current Part L standard and avoid overheating.
Featured education work
Chenderit School, Middleton Cheney
QODA were appointed as M&E services designers for the new standalone teaching facility at Chenderit School. The new eight classroom accommodation split over two floors provides multifunctional teaching space to the school. The works included the demolition and removal of existing facilities including the modification and diversion of site infrastructure. To maximise useful floor area within the footprint, the MEP services design utilises spare capacity within the existing plant in an adjacent building, therefore minimising the size of new plantrooms. Detailed co-ordination using visualisations from 3D modelling tools were key to developing agreed servicing strategies which included, suspended acoustic rafts concealing localised ventilation and other room mounted services.
“I have worked with the QODA team on wide range of projects for many years. They understand my architectural ideas and can design engineering systems and lighting concepts that will compliment and enhance the design.”
