Architectural Practice of the Year

With UK-based design studios in London, Birmingham, Sheffield and Kent, Bond Bryan Architects work embraces the worlds of Strategic Property Advice, Masterplanning, Architecture, Landscape, Interiors and Digital Strategy. 2016/17 has seen us deliver landmark projects for all main education subsectors: Commercial Research Partnerships, Higher Education, Further Education, Secondary Schools, SEN Schools and Primary/Nursery Education.

Recent projects and achievements include:

• Delivering projects with 10 Universities across the country
• £30m Charles Street major teaching building for Sheffield Hallam University
• 2 Flagship buildings on the University of Nottingham’s Jubilee Campus that actively support and promote collaboration across academic disciplines and with industry
• Masterplanning of the two ground-breaking Advanced Manufacturing Parks with the University of Sheffield
• Delivering the first three campuses for the network of National Colleges including the National College for High Speed Rail in both Doncaster and Birmingham and the National College for Nuclear in Cumbria.
• Working with contractors and the EFA to offer technical advice and design expertise to create over 20 new schools offering high quality learning environments
• An internationally-recognised digital consultancy that is championing the benefits of truly open standards in BIM and offering leadership in its application to facilities management.

Innovation in Teaching and Learning

As well as a 268-seat lecture theatre with ‘turn and learn’ seating, Charles Street was designed to include flexible, state of the art teaching and learning spaces, including a SCALE UP room and student-centred informal learning spaces. Teaching rooms contain flexible furniture which allows academics to quickly and easily change the room layout to suit the activity taking place. The Learning Enhancement and Academic Development team have worked closely with academic staff to introduce and embed new pedagogies, enabled by the presence of these flexible formal and informal learning spaces. The easily-adaptable spaces allow academics to think differently about their teaching practice and the students benefit from the adjacent informal learning space, allowing them to continue working on tasks together outside of formal teaching time.

Taking the principles established in Charles Street, the University are now beginning to adapt spaces within their existing buildings to mirror these flexible learning environments, ensuring that students and staff can embrace new and innovative ways of working and learning.

Matt Hutton, Lead Designer, commented: “This project has been a labour of love for the whole design team and we believe the results speak for themselves. The opportunities provided by the building and the flexibility in teaching and learning methods available will, undoubtedly, enable the University to be at the forefront of education delivery for many years into the future.”

The annual Education Estates Awards & Dinner will take place on the first night of the Education Estates conference – 1st November at the Mercure Manchester Piccadilly Hotel.

Bond Bryan – Selected For All Three LSC Regions

Bond Bryan Architects is one of only two practices to have been selected for the Learning & Skills Council framework in all three regions of the UK, to provide design and consultancy services to colleges seeking new buildings and refurbishment projects, reinforcing the firm’s position at the leading edge of Further Education design.

Jonathan Herbert, Bond Bryan MD:

Bond Bryan managing director, Jonathan Herbert, says: “Being one of only two firms named on all three regional frameworks really vindicates our approach because we stand for excellent design, sound delivery and, above all, expert knowledge of the education sector’s needs. Our work on Matthew Boulton College, for instance, exemplifies a design led by education drivers and educators.”

Matthew Boulton College is well known in the sector as having raised the bar in terms of a design-led educational establishment and has resulted in recruitment benefits for the college which relocated to its original site within a regeneration area and the new ‘learning quarter’ Birmingham city centre. The nine-storey project is short-listed for this year’s RIBA/LSC Further Education Design Awards.

Bond Bryan has recently opened a southern studio in Kent and Greham Raynham, the new MD of Bond Bryan in the south, said: “We started here on 2 January 2008. Jeff Stibbons and Stewart Paine and I all have significant experience in creating places for learning.

“We are busy developing some exciting project opportunities in the FE sector including Basildon College, Westminster Kingsway College, Boston College and the International Climate Exchange building at Cambridge.

“We have also been building our team and will have 18 staff by May with a view to growing further in response to the demand in the FE sector as the LSC framework becomes active.

“Bond Bryan has a great ethos of design quality in response to client-focused need and as leaders in education architecture we are excited about the future of the south studio as the LSC framework starts to operate and other opportunities in the sector come forward. Bond Bryan is also active in commercial and regeneration projects and we will be looking to build on existing practice expertise in these fields in the Southern Studio.”
