Headline Festival Sponsor: Atkins

Atkins provides multidisciplinary design and project management services in all areas of Higher Education design, including Masterplanning, General Teaching, Laboratories, Residential and supporting facilities. Our design ethos is to always place the Users at the heart of our thinking, at both macro and micro scale. Our projects entail design of extensions, refurbishments and new buildings. Over the years we’ve worked collaboratively with our clients to improve the learning environments of the next generation, recognising our responsibility to use resources wisely to create spaces where people of all ages can learn, innovate and build our future.

Our people have extensive experience in designing higher education projects so that they, and their students, can reach their fullest potential. By using the full breadth of our people’s expertise, we can provide a range of solutions from architecture to multidisciplinary design; project and change management to carbon and sustainability consultancy.

We believe that good design has the power to transform lives.

Everyone deserves good design; nobody more so than the young people who inhabit the education spaces we create: buildings and environments that…
… set new standards

… have a positive social purpose

… are beautiful to use

… challenge convention

… strike the perfect balance

We believe the design process is as important as the designed product, and therefore we have invested in creating a

Human Centred Design toolkit which underpins our design engagement process from inception to completion and beyond.
