Bryanston Square

Collaborating with CDC are Bryanston Square, a lead educational consultant within the UK. Christine Ginty from Bryanston Square says:

“Only now are the designs forged through the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme being built and tested by today’s students. Do they facilitate an evolution in methods of learning? We have to face the fact that in the design stage there is still a lot of educated guesswork on what will make a good school. However, one of the things about which we can be certain is that poor circulation encourages poor behaviour. Until recently the amount of space that should be allowed in any given part of the school has also been the subject of gut feel, guidelines and previous experience. Now however, we can scientifically predict where congestion will occur. Bryanston Square and CDC are among the first to exploit this for the benefit of schools. In all we do we strive to make the best possible environment for students and are therefore proud to collaborate with CDC in this critical element of school design. Bryanston Square works with schools, with authorities, and with the private sector on all aspects of the BSF process.”
