Estate Strategy Planning

ECP - Estate Strategy Planning Service

Our Estate Strategy Planning service, consists of conducting estate-wide assessments of the educational accommodation and external spaces. This is to be able to determine the suitability, efficiency and compliancy aligned with the Building Bulletins.

In conjunction with condition-based information, this forms the basis for our strategy that we will propose. The strategy identifies and targets any solutions we recognise are needed, to resolve the identified issues. The documented strategy also acts as detailed justification to support funding bid submissions.

The resulting documentation is continually adapted and updated to reflect completed works. It also demonstrates the school’s ongoing commitment to providing the best facilities for their staff and students.

Primary and secondary schools can use Building Bulletin 103 to create their schedule of accommodation, comparing this to existing buildings where necessary. We also assess spaces for their compliance against the statutory building regulations and wider building bulletin advice on fire strategy, acoustics, heating and ventilation. 

Estate Strategy Planning Services include:

  • Room area checks
  • Faculty and timetabling review to room numbers
  • Faculty clustering review
  • Identifying development opportunities
  • Local Authority planning review
  • Construction phasing assessment
  • Decarbonisation planning review
  • Long-term master plan across sites
