Educational facilities have always benefited from a strong relationship with architecture – functional, practical, economical, nurturing, inspiring. The ethos of an institution is often embodied in its learning environment. We have a wealth of experience in all facets of educational design from pre-schools and playgrounds to universities and research laboratories.

While each project is unique, there are requirements common to all education facilities. The capital cost of the building must be economical; the structure and internal planning must be flexible to allow for future changes; and recurrent costs for building operation, maintenance and staffing must be minimised. Our extensive experience of the planning and pre-design stages enables us to offer clients a comprehensive assessment of the project in question, whether starting with a blank canvas or adapting an existing site.

We have also developed a strong design methodology to efficiently collect, process and interpret the needs of the users. Our team is committed to research and training and we subscribe to education industry periodicals, attend conferences and visit recent significant projects in order to maintain our awareness of developments in educational design, both here and abroad. Current projects are regularly reviewed to ensure that the client’s needs are being met, and we undertake post-occupancy evaluations to ensure that lessons learned from past projects are applied to future projects.

Suters Architects understands education projects. We have the expertise, resources and systems to provide facilities which reflect the needs of users, both now and in the future.
