Architect working with Willmott Dixon on £13 million project
Southampton City Council has procured Hunters’ standardised school system to provide extra accommodation for three schools.
The London-based practice is working with Willmott Dixon and Scape on the £13 million project which includes Wordsworth Infant school, Banister Infant and Nursery School and Moorlands Primary School.
The designed is based on the standardised Sunesis concept.
Oliver Gill, strategy and capital programme manager from Southampton City Council said: “Adopting this approach has served to significantly reduce the time that the authority has spent in design and procurement, thereby expediting the delivery of the buildings and reducing the associated cost.
“As a consequence, we have been able to deliver new build solutions for schools where this had previously been thought impossible within the available funding.”
Atkins is also working with the Sunesis system on two schools in Rugby and the Isle of Wight. Both were given a positive design review by Design Council Cabe earlier this year.
