Education – School Design and Construction

Aspect’s team of design and construction specialists are experts in the management and delivery of projects in multiple sectors including education facilities, having gained experience on range of academic developments across the world. We offer a fully integrated, sustainable ‘turn-key’ service, taking projects from initial branding, operation and cost feasibility stages, through to delivery. 
Working alongside our industry leading partners, our robust internal management systems enable us to guide projects smoothly through each of the design, permitting, construction, and fit-out stages, and seamlessly facilitate a ‘soft-landing’ in the early phases of building operations.

Aspect can support new build developments, extensions, code compliance / refurbishment works, FFE design, procurement and acquisitions. With the rising cost of raw materials and fuel, Aspect also recognizes the significance of sustainable design, life cycle costing, and energy management.  Our team encourage and advocate ‘green’ building solutions and cost-effective construction methods to add value and reduce operational costs.  

Our experience tells us that standardization, codification, and simplification of school designs using modern methods of construction leads to improved cost certainty and minimized development risk. Aspect embrace new technologies to safeguard our position as a front-runner in the industry and provide an unparalleled service to our clients. We utilize advanced building information modelling techniques and are looking to push the boundaries of modular and pre-fab construction methodologies, which will lead to new and exciting construction opportunities with improved cost and program certainty along with optimized quality.


Aspect’s design team provide imaginative and stimulating environments that are safe, comfortable, and secure places to learn and teach. Our thorough understanding of the education process and our industry experience allows us design from the operator’s perspective. We design from the ‘inside-out’ incorporating the latest digital learning advancements, whilst always maintaining that delivery of the curriculum is the key objective. We assist with branding and bench-marking, then work operators with initial space-planning and conceptual designs to ensure optimum build-ability, regulatory compliance and most efficient use of available space and budget. We then assemble stakeholder teams to realize client aspirations,  manage appointments, and preside over the subsequent design works to ensure they comply with, or preferably exceed, globally recognized best practice.


Aspect recognize and understand that comfort is important for effective teaching and learning within school environments.  Although the conditions that contribute to “comfortable” spaces may not be instantly and widely noticeable, they are perhaps the most important attributes of any school design. Well designed indirect lighting, clear sight lines and avoidance of glare are key to enhanced visibility, whilst better audibly-aligned learning environments have carefully considered acoustic treatment and noise source attenuation. Efficient heating, cooling, ventilation and humidity-control contribute to fresh unpolluted air, whereas environmentally friendly materials minimize airborne contaminants and VOC emissions. Aspect works in harmony with our clients from inception stage to ensure these requirements are translated through the design phase and are ultimately realized as an integral part of the school model.
