Key Details

We were appointed to act as technical advisor to the client team for what was at the time, the largest free school to have been built in the UK.

Education & Skills Funding Agency

The Project

Our role involved sitting alongside the academy trust Principal, EFA project director, architectural TA and external project manager to vet & challenge the contractors strategies and proposals during the competitive dialogue stage. The site is located in Leeds city centre so issues with air quality and noise transmission from the adjacent trunk road were areas of focus, as was challenging the contractor methodology for delivering the planning requirement for a BREEAM Excellent rating. Post contract award we worked with the contractor to develop a renewables strategy which would be of greatest benefit to the client.
