Education & School Buildings

We believe education establishments and school buildings should be designed as buildings that inspire learning whilst nurturing every pupil and member of staff alike. We achieve this by creating truly inspirational buildings with the most efficient and futureproof designs possible. A successful design of a school building should be a close collaboration between funders, local authorities, school communities and the design team. Working with you and the rest of the team, we can familiarise ourselves with your requirements to ensure that your school achieves all of its goals and objectives.

Using our knowledge and experience of architecture, we can develop your school building or establishment to your needs to allow its smooth running whilst complying with the standards, regulations, and guidelines which exist within the industry. Safety, security, equal accessibility, and sustainability are all important aspects of the design which need to be considered during the early stages of the project.

We can offer different drawing output formats such as sketches, 3D visuals, walk-throughs and models which all will allow us to communicate the design ideas/solutions to you or to other 3rd parties i.e. investors who need to understand/sign-off the build. This is the best way to truly immerse yourself in the design of the school building and understand the potential it has.

We provide comprehensive advice before any commitment

Designing and planning

The expertise we have in fully incorporating budget, structure, services, Health and Safety, and all other aspects of design from the early stages of the project enables us to deliver designs that are not only architecturally successful but also ensures the most economical and efficient design solutions.

Structural engineering

We are always improving our knowledge of building processes, tackling sustainability and energy conservation strategies to ensure your building complies with the latest regulations and required performances. We always aim to deliver projects which allow your building to have minimum environmental impact and cost.

3D visualisation

Bringing your project to life before it even begins can be a huge asset to many organisations. Whether you are pitching to investors or meeting with shareholders, our 3D architectural visualisation tools can go a long way to helping portray your vision to others and making sure that all parties can understand the potential of what you are going to achieve.

Project management

We have a full architectural design package from building inception through to completion, covering all RIBA work stages.  This can begin with feasibility and concept design, to planning and building regulations approved drawings with specifications ready for tender/construction. If required, this can be complemented by contract administration services which include site inspections and monitoring the build on site to ensure the contractor is building in compliance with the approved construction drawings, specifications and the building contract.

A fully trained team is on hand to help you however necessary

Highly recommend CK Architectural. Chris and his team did a great job gaining planning permission for a new build and renovation of an existing property. We hit some dead ends with the planning officer but Chris found different ways of getting around the problems without going over budget.

For someone far removed from the building / planning industries the thought of where to start when thinking of a big extension project to my house (two story to the side and wrap around of semi-detached 3 bed) was a little daunting at first. Luckily, after obtaining a competitive quote, I enlisted the services of CK Architectural and have been very impressed with not only the service received but the ease at which they have made the whole process. After listening to my thoughts and the reasons for needing the extension work doing, the architect came up with a great design that encompassed everything that was needed. Even when I changed my mind over a couple of aspects, Donna, Chris and the team were quick to administer any alterations. Every visit to the house for measurements / planning etc has happened without a hitch with all members of the team we've encountered being punctual and professional at all times. The best thing has been by far the ease at which CK have made of getting all council and local authority sign off for the project. All I have needed to do is pay the fees at the required time, no stress involved and all went through seamlessly. I'm now at the stage where I have the drawings to hand and have submitted them to builders to obtain quotes. Importantly, the feedback so far from the builders indicates the project to be within the budget specifications I explained to CK during the first consultation. Very happy customer 🙂 Carl.

Excellent Service and prompt!! I have taken CK's service twice. Chris and his team is very helpful and most importantly have enough patience to accommodate my frequently changing mind set. I would happily recommend any one to CK Architectural and wish them all the best.
