Knop Law Primary Wins Again

We are delighted to have received a further two awards, as part of the Lord Mayor's Design Awards 2011, for Knop Law Primary School in Newcastle. The awards are the latest accolade for the school, which won an RIBA Northeast Award earlier in 2011.

The project won in the Accessibility category, where '...the judges were united in their praise for this scheme which has incorporated accessibility from the outset. Ramp access has been incorporated into the landscape design which covers an 11 metre change in levels across the site. Internally, there is good colour contrast, excellent lighting, it is spacious and there is good free flow access to the external areas.'

We are also proud that Knop Law Primary School has won the Lord Mayor's Special Award. The Lord Mayor's Special Award recognises '...the overall design approach taken...Liaison with staff and pupils has ensured that the design provides the facilities required by this particular school rather than a standard solution. The judges were unanimous in their praise for the attention to detail given to both the internal and external areas of the school.'
