Education

BAM has extensive experience of delivering education projects, which provide sustainable learning environments, inspire pupils and facilitate local community engagement.

Our work spans the full remit of schemes from 80 place SEN schools to 1,700 place academies and higher education colleges. In the last 18 months BAM has completed 49 education facilities. 23 of these were for the Department of Education (DfE) and a further 15 were procured directly by Local Authorities.

This depth of experience enables us to provide clients with the best outcomes in relation to time, cost and quality, while also ensuring that both the client and school’s aspirations are met.

We take a whole life view 

We partner with a specialist whole life consultant to provide consistent operational outputs on each of our projects under the DfE framework allowing us to demonstrate an improvement in the clients funding parameters. As a result of this work, a recent Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) for Great Western Academy found that the utilities cost was £64,574, compared to the forecast of £97,803/annum. A direct financial benefit in operational savings. 


 

Long term partnerships

 
Our team builds long term partnerships with Strategic Frameworks and end user clients.  As part of this we foster a culture of engagement which lead to excellent outcomes.

Supporting clients to meet the challenges of the future

As public sector bodies prepare to meet the Government’s climate change objectives by 2050, our teams are looking at how we track the required information and enable schools to meet this challenge. BAM, the Department of Education and the CIBSE school design group. worked together on an initiative to examine how the predicted changes to our global climate will influence the overheating of schools in the future. Knowledge that we can now use to help us mitigate the impact of climate change on new and existing school buildings.
