Building Bedfordshire: A decade of Collaborative Excellence in School Delivery
Kiran Sharma-Boon, NORR Architects; Megan Kennedy, Willmott Dixon; & Nicholas Claessen, Willmott Dixon

The Bedfordshire schools programme has delivered over 10,000 school places over a 12-year period. It showcases the power of collaborative partnership in education development. This presentation explores the partnership between key stakeholders, including Pick Everard, Willmott Dixon, Bedford Borough Council, SCAPE, and NORR Architects. We'll discuss strategies, lessons learned, and the benefits of frameworks like SCAPE, which enhance efficiency and collaboration. Overcoming challenges such as tight timelines and working in live school environments, the team achieved exceptional educational facilities. Listeners will gain insight into what it takes to build a successful team, and the benefits that this brings to a school delivery programme, providing learning they can apply to their own school projects.
