CBP were commissioned by Milton Keyes Academy to design and gain Planning approval for the erection of a new freestanding science teaching block and separate dining hall with the aim to greatly improve the facilities of the school. The academy did not have a sufficient number of science laboratories to meet the needs of the curriculum. The academy places great importance on the teaching of the STEM* curriculum. The original restaurant was undersized and not in the most appropriate location in terms of safely managing the flow and supervision of students at lunch and break times. The re-location of the restaurant frees up the existing restaurant area allowing this to be utilised as a new reception and multi gym.
