Footprint Architects were appointed in 2013 by Gardiner and Theobald to act as technical advisor’s for Redbridges’s school expansion programme. The school projects within the programme consisted of:
Initially we were appointed to develop control options and finalise briefs for each of the sites across the framework and seek outline planning consent for 7 Kings primary school which was the sample scheme to be worked up in competition by the contractor design teams as part of the Invitation to Tender process. We were involved in the competitive dialogue and evaluation of the tender return proposals.
On appointment of the preferred bidder we worked with the technical advisor team to review the Contractor’s Proposals for each scheme and completed site inspections and compliance checks throughout the construction works. All schemes have been completed on site with Al Noor Primary school to be completed in May 2018.
