Nightingale Associates awarded two school projects through BSF scheme

Nightingale Associates in the UK has won two school projects under the Tower Hamlets Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme.

The £13.1 million Oakhams School and the £4.2 million Ian Mikado School are the first for the practice under the local framework and will involve refurbishments of both schools’ facilities. Ian Mikado, a Special Needs School, will also give the practice the opportunity to expand its SEN portfolio, an area in which it is fast developing. Nightingale Associates, which has a research team committed to developing education environments that stimulate learning and well-being, will now begin the design phases for both projects.

Nightingale Associates will work with contractor, Bouygues, who this month signed the 5-10 year, £240 million contract with Tower Hamlets Local Authority to transform 18 schools within its borough. The contract is part of the Government’s nationwide BSF programme, which aims to transform all schools in the UK by 2020.

The Tower Hamlets BSF programme will consist of four batches, each containing four to five schools, and will involve a combination of new-build developments and refurbishments.

Nightingale Associates had worked with A Studio Architects to secure its place on the framework, with the design of a sample school, the Bethnal Green Technology College.
