I struggle to understand how schools can be allowed to get to this state - with so many new school buildings across the country this is a worrying stat - how can FM businesses help rectify this problem?
RIBA states that its report is a further insight into the government’s own assertion that just 5 per cent of the nearly 60,000 school buildings across the UK are performing as intended and operating efficiently. RIBA president Jane Duncan said: “This country is in the grip of the worst shortage of school places in living memory. Our report highlights the vital importance of school design and how it affects the general health and wellbeing of their users, our children and their teachers. As limited funding is available to deal with the growing problem, every penny spent on schools must deliver maximum value for money.” Duncan added: “We urge the government to review its programme of building new schools.”
