The RIBA believes that in order for new school buildings to get top marks from pupils and teachers the UK Government needs to ensure that an increasingly centralised schools capital project delivery system is able to respond to the unique local circumstances of each school building project. Their proposals can be summarised around three themes: • Reviewing how information and communication flows between the school, Government, and design and construction teams during a project; • Adopting a more flexible approach to the rules governing the design and size of new schools to allow for the best possible use of resources; • Taking a smarter approach to the use of building management equipment that controls the internal environment of modern school buildings.
