ST TEILO’S CHURCH IN WALES HIGH SCHOOL CARDIFF

Austin-Smith:Lord was commissioned by Mott MacDonald and Cardiff City Council, through the Buying Solution Framework, to design a new state of the art highly sustainable school. We played a pivotal role in establishing a brief through stakeholder consultation and developing design options through to Stage D. Through a programme of comprehensive community and stakeholder consultation and collaborative working between the Client User Group, Design team, Planning Authority and Statutory consultees, we steered a significantly scaled project smoothly through the Planning process, in less than four months from inception meeting to submission for Planning consent.

We played a pivotal role in establishing a brief through stakeholder consultation and developing design options through to Stage D.
Through a programme of comprehensive community and stakeholder consultation and collaborative working between the Client User Group, Design team, Planning Authority and Statutory consultees, we steered a significantly scaled project smoothly through the Planning process, in less than four months from inception meeting to submission for Planning consent.
The goal of the new schools was to provide the best possible quality of education for pupils through the creation of a consistent, sustainable, pattern of “fit for purpose” schools which will provide opportunities for all learners to achieve high standards and contribute to community development, social inclusion and economic prosperity across the City.

Austin-Smith:Lord listened to the vision for a state of the art Faith School espousing Christian values. They facilitated a design consultation with staff and governors enabling each subject area to contribute their ideas. They have safeguarded the overall original vision with its important design concepts and understood the demands of the 21st century learning environment that we seek to create.
