Surface to Air Architects were appointed to act as Client Design Advisor (CDA) for London Borough of Hillingdon, from the inception of its schools building programme through to its completion, performing a range of tasks to help ensure that the schools delivered were of the highest quality. We worked with all secondary school in the borough and a number of primary schools. We helped to define ways in which the council could develop and achieve its vision of a borough wide campus for learning. This involved liaising directly with the schools and key stakeholders through a consultation process, which included the delivery of a series of workshops, presentations, seminars and reference site visits in the UK and abroad. We worked particularly closely with Rosedale College, Abbotsfield and Swakeley’s School. We also identified key design issues and educational priorities with individual schools and created the school specific Education and Design Briefs. Our aim was to support the client with our expertise and equip them with the right tools for assessing design quality through the procurement process.
