After a long period of consultation, we are reliably informed that BB101’s new guidelines for air quality in classrooms will be released this year; the ESFA framework is now in place with a new Output Specification, and Government will continue its roll out of improvements to school environments through the £4.5bn budget.

In this issue, our feature story outlines the impact of BB101 amendments on school environments, the proposed changes, and how by clever design, Three Rivers Academy is already exceeding targets - positioning the design and construction team as leaders in innovative school design.
