Nick Mirchandani is speaking at SPACES, a study day to be hosted by Hampshire County Council in Winchester next week. The theme of the day will be discussing how to successfully deliver educational buildings within a landscape of challenging programmes and budgets, without compromising on quality, whole life or the environment, and aims to stimulate debate, share experiences and explore the lessons that can be taken away by architects, school estates managers and the wider public/private sector.
The workshop will focus on the RIBA’s new #TopMarkSchools report, on which Nick was a contributor. The report comprises of what is believed to be the largest analysis of Post Occupancy Evaluations of primary and secondary schools in the UK, a nation-wide poll of teachers and numerous conversations with stakeholders involved in delivering government-funded school buildings, and demonstrates how good design can help ensure that capital funding stretches as far as possible. The full report can be downloaded from the RIBA website.
