Masterplanning Article Published in the ISBA's Spring Edition of The Bursar's Review

Partner and ADP Chairman Roger FitzGerald highlights in The ISBA’s The Bursar’s Review how time and effort spent pre-planning will enhance the reputation of the school and bring long-term strategic benefits, not only in the functionality of the estate, but also in providing up-to-date facilities that meet the school’s academic vision.

Roger explains how masterplanning provides an excellent opportunity to strategically review the current state of a site, and find ways to simplify and rationalise the layout to reassert the original conception and maximise the school’s assets. Careful long term planning helps to avoid expensive mistakes, and provides the means by which to measure results and progress. Forward thinking also helps create a cohesive vision for the school and a sense of purpose that can be shared with current and prospective parents, pupils and staff.
