Oakwood Community School

United Education Services Ltd.
£1.5 Million+

Our initial involvement with this site saw the conversion of a series of existing farm and outbuildings into a dedicated Special Educational Needs establishment, suitable for 1:1 teaching in a rural environment. Existing steel frame structures were stripped back to their framing and rebuilt on the same footprint. This created a fresh set of buildings for the School, and structures that would comfortably meet the required Building Regulations.

In 2020, our Client expressed interest to develop the site further. Our team closely followed the given brief to expand the School site inline with demand for SEN places within the Leicestershire area. The Phase 2 development would create two large main teaching blocks, linked with a central Main Entrance and Reception Area. Nestled to the rear sits a dedicated Workshop for woodwork and engineering, along with a large Sports Hall and Multi-use Games Area for Physical Education.

An extensive 3D scheme was produced as the site layout was established. This was crucial in conveying the latest development of the site to staff and pupils, and aided the planning process also.

What our clients say...

Highly recommend, Niell at SRA fully appreciated the need to balance the history of the house, conservation area requirements and modern living in the design for our renovation and extension requirements.

Mandy, Residential Client

The designs that SRA produced were outstanding. The layout works perfect and the specification is exactly what we were after! SRA oversaw the whole project through to completion and ensured the building was delivered as expected.

Residential Client

SRA have designed new houses and building alterations on a number of projects we have tendered for and worked on over the past 20 years or so. Their plans and specifications are consistently clear and thorough and the architectural work in the construction phase has been excellent. I have found them to be one of the leading practices we have worked with throughout this time.

Residential Client

In my opinion, the best Architectural services in Lincoln. SRA completed amendments to our planning application and incorporated the redesign of 8 houses. The application was immediately approved which has avoided costly delays. The new house design has added value to the project and will provide much better use of the space. SRA have my highest recommendation for projects both large and small.

SP3 Developments Ltd

It is wonderful to see such an excellent facility completed and for it to be able to offer education and childcare to our community.

Richard Wells, Parish Council Chairman

Niell and team did a great job with plans and 3D graphics.  As I struggle to visualise, the graphics allowed me to get a realistic image. Having Niell deal with the planning department takes away the stress and their knowledge and experience is invaluable. They were very patient as we couldn’t always make up our minds. Thanks guys, great job.
