ACD Environmental can offer a complete school landscape design service for developers who are required to include schools in their development masterplans. We have a dedicated team of specialists who have expertise in designing and overseeing construction of landscapes for new schools and extensions to schools for a local authority. We can work with the developer, architect, local education authority and planning authority to agree strategies for:
- Allocation of external space according to BB103 guidelines
- Safe access and movement around the site, including separation of vehicles and pedestrians
- Safeguarding of pupils
- Soft landscape maintenance and habitat creation
- Ensuring the landscape elements can be delivered at reasonable cost
We will ensure that the school grounds are designed according to these agreed principles, that the design is achievable within a reasonable budget, and that the elements, including car parks, playgrounds, playing fields, planting and fencing are fit for purpose and do not impose a heavy maintenance burden on the school.
