Shadow cast over UK’s £45 billion education programme 

UK Architects came under fire this week in a damming report by the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL). The UK’s Building Schools for the Future programme (BSF) aims to rebuild every secondary school in England by 2020 at a cost of £45bn. However criticisms raised at the organisation’s annual meeting, by ATL Health and Safety expert Ann Nash, questions whether the new schools emerging are actually fit for purpose. Her complaints centred on a number of basic design flaws including; corridors that are too narrow which can spark fights through jostling, insufficient toilet capacity and heating and ventilation systems that are unable to cope. However Ms Nash didn’t offer her thoughts on where the process was failing.
