Plincke worked along with Mace, as Client Design Advisors for Hertfordshire County Council. We produced Outline Business Cases for the first wave of six schools in Stevenage. Each business case proposed a landscape strategy, that challenged the current uses and perceptions of the school grounds.
We set out to clearly define an external spatial framework which encouraged new learning practices to develop over time. The outline business cases therefore demand flexible and responsive tools to aid curriculum delivery and support learning outside the classroom. The business cases will form the main briefing document to bidding design teams through the HCC OJEU procurement route – and serve as a high level strategic response which can be delivered at each school in the programme.
