Mott MacDonald and Drivers Jonas appointed to provide environmental design guidance for Scottish schools

Drivers Jonas Scotland has partnered with Mott MacDonald to provide environmental design guidance for Scottish Schools for the Scottish Executive. The aim of the project is to improve environ-mental performance in all new and refurbished schools which is of increasing importance to create good learning environments and sustainable educational facilities.

Drivers Jonas will act as project manager for the commission and Mott MacDonald will lead the technical team, which also includes Sarah Wigglesworth Architects and Hawksmoor Acoustics.

Commenting on the commission Drivers Jonas project manager Colin Meiklejohn said: “School environments are often complex. Stakeholder interest in this issue is therefore wide ranging and engaging with the relevant stakeholders will form an important part of the guidance preparation. The initial responses from the various stakeholders are very positive and we are grateful for their participation in this project.”

Mott MacDonald project manager Gordon Hudson said: “Whilst school classrooms may appear straightforward and familiar, they are complex spaces that have acoustic, lighting, air quality and thermal demands that need to be satisfied. Our aim is to ensure that new schools have the appropriate systems to provide learning environments that are suitable for the 21st century.”

The guidance material for new and refurbished schools in Scotland will be aimed at client briefing teams, engineers, architects, building contractors and a wide range of parties interested in school design and facilities management. It is expected to be complete by the end of 2006.
