We had a busy time with competitions in 2008: winning at Coventry University, and placings for the Mersey Observatory, Merton Rise housing masterplan, Maritime Stade, and Brent Civic Centre with Make Architects.
We were appointed at Havering 6th Form College, Birmingham City University, Birkbeck East, and Sparsholt College projects. Our education team presented an Outline Business Case (OBC) and worked on student consultations for Hertfordshire BSF. Work commenced on the Walsall Framework with Barcroft Primary School in October.
Ongoing projects came to fruition with openings at the restored Grade II* Hill Close Gardens in March whilst the 2012 Olympics Athletics Training Centre was completed ahead of time in Hampshire. Phoenix Park in Wolverhampton re-opened after a £1.3 million make over and Park Campus, Lambeth – the first new pupil referral unit in a generation also opened its doors to the first 110-pupils. Our education team were very proud that Kelmscott School won an award for Best Remodelled School in November.
