Factors such as air quality, ventilation, natural lighting, thermal comfort and acoustic performance have been shown to have a profound impact on teacher well-being and student attentiveness, attendance and overall performance.
Aside from developing a building capable of supporting these factors, schools must also be designed with durability and safety in mind due to the wear and tear they will be exposed to over the years. Good design and procurement methods have a significant impact on the quality of the final development and its operation.
Learning lessons from completed schemes is one of the most valuable ways of influencing design and further enabling architecture to support the education process.
