Client
United Education Services Ltd.
Value
£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...

SRA Architecture worked for us on two different occasions & projects, a small one and a bigger scale project. They were advising, helpful, great at planning, very knowledgeable and always kept us updated. I would definitely recommend!

Jenny, Residential Client

Neill at SRA Architecture has been amazingly professional and supportive throughout, advising on different packages to help budget effectively and offering a service that helps take away a lot of the stress and workload when doing a large renovation project.

Ben, Residential Client

Niell provided me one of the most professional services I have received. The quality of service was outstanding, Niell answered the phone every time and answered any questions I had the same day whether by email or phone. The plot I was looking at was also of a beautiful design. I would confidently recommend anyone to use SRA Architecture.

Carl, Residential Client

We have been working with Niell and his team at SRA in redesigning an existing planning passed house design. We have found them to be highly efficient, offering good choice of recommendations and proposals and very easy and pleasant to work with. The brief had to take place within a short period of time and the team were very accommodating with this, especially in difficult Covid times. I would highly recommend using SRA for future plans.

Jennifer, Residential Client

SRA Architecture have made so much difference – we now have six parking/pull-in spaces with our own filter lane taking the school traffic away from the lane, leaving it free for the residents and through traffic including emergency vehicles.

Clare Dawson, School Business Manager

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.
