St Thomas Aquinas Catholic School & Sixth Form

Lumen Christi Multi Academy

Our team were approached by the Lumen Christi Multi Academy to produce a detailed Feasibility Study to help improve the existing kerb appeal and aspirational feel of St Thomas Aquinas Catholic School, Birmingham. With an established brief provided by the Client, we were responsible for conducting and managing a series of surveys to collect vital information required to assess proposal options. Emphasis on creating greater kerb appeal, an strong aspirational feel, successfully linking old areas with new, and communicating a strong Catholic identity formed the key points for the development brief.

A series of options were generated by our design team, each aiming to meet the key aspirations of the School in a unique manner. A series of detailed 2D layouts were first established, providing a dimensionally accurate base to develop a series of Artists Impressions to convey the scheme to a wider audience.

The project is presently awaiting receipt of the formal approvals from the Local Planning Authority, with our team progressing detailed specification information in readiness for construction. The full scope of works is set to complete by the Autumn term of 2024.

What our clients say...

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

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

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.

Sharon, 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

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

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.
