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...

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

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

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

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

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

I found SRA Architecture online as I was looking at purchasing a property and needed input from an Architectural Practice who knows the area. I came across these guys and I was very impressed with the amount of knowledge they had. Neill is very much approachable and goes out of his way to find out all the information, and this in turn gave me the confidence of whether to make the purchase or not – I highly recommend them.
