CEC provides professional advice and solutions for both private and publicly maintained schools, universities and colleges with respect to:
- School Travel Plans
- Safer Routes to School audits
- Transport Assessments/Statements
- Flood Risk Assessments
- School travel surveys
- Detailed design of new civil engineering infrastructure (such as pedestrian crossings, car parks, roads, drainage etc.)
- Car park layout design to maximise parking provision / efficiency
- Resolution of existing flooding, drainage or access problems
- On-street parking surveys
- Land redevelopment opportunities
Many of these CEC services will often be required to support planning applications for school/college extensions and new-build projects.
We work closely with both senior school/college staff, and the local authority throughout the project to achieve the optimum outcome for our Clients. We understand the specific challenges relating to working with educational establishments, such as the frequent need to address the concerns of local residents and parents whilst achieving the desired outcome for the school/college.
Case study examples are provided throughout the website under each of our key disciplines, however, the following provide a flavour of the work we have undertaken for educational establishments:
