Quadpro are experts in helping education organisations get the best from their building stock. Whatever stage you have reached in your property planning we can help. With 25 years’ experience of working with schools, colleges and other education sectors we understand the pressures estates issues can create on both scant resources and an organisation's management.
Our way of working is approachable and our solutions are successful with the right concern for needs, cost, performance, the environment, planning constraints and efficiency that has led to appreciation from all sectors.
We have worked with a complete range of clients, large and small in both the Independent and public sectors. Our teams can analyse your problems be they lack of space, overstretched budgets, reorganisation of maintenance arrangements, tricky capital works programming or complex design requirements and team set up and management. By listening to your needs and consulting with every one of the interested parties we ensure the solutions we provide are well received, affordable and appropriate.
Over the years this strategic experience has provided the foundation for a wide range of projects working with secondary schools and colleges as well as a number of primary and special needs schools. In many cases we have developed long term relationships involving the phased implementation of our masterplans over a number of years. This experience is particularly pertinent as the schools agenda moves away from completely re-building schools and back to an era where there was a premium placed on spending limited capital to maximum effect, working to improve, extend and enhance existing accommodation.
To succeed we have needed to apply an holistic approach and develop solutions that are adaptable and enduring this now enables us to deploy a wide range of skills which are strongly embedded in Quadpro and our teams:
Masterplanning, to provide a framework for development and change now and in the future;
Curriculum analysis: working with the school to best match teaching need to space and test the adaptability of solutions to future change;
Consultation: to engage with teachers, pupils and parents;
The team’s experience includes complete new schools, adding significant extensions, major alterations and additions and developing design guides, procedure manuals, knowledge base systems and WIKIs.
Project and design team management, to ensure that solutions are cost effective and deliverable and can be implemented while schools remain operational;
Managing design to both support and inspire learning;
We can assist you to turn your problem assets into appreciating ones, just get in touch via the contact form or call Steve McGivney on 0207 183 4050 for a chat to see where the opportunities lie.
