This new Academy was created with a determination to improve education performance amongst the local population and support young people gain the skills required by industry. The building design reflects these needs and provides workshop facilities that are unequalled. The principal sponsors were Jaguar Land Rover and the University of Warwick. The building is located on a compact site adjacent an existing school and so can share facilities.
Services provided: Project Management
The challenges: Working with a client formed from the commercial sponsor and new academics that were appointed part way through the project to ensure the design brief met the academic aspirations being set.
Outcomes: The Academy became the top performing sixth form in Coventry within 3 years.
