Non-statutory area guidelines for school buildings and sites
For Teaching space analysis: Building Bulletin 103: Area Guidelines for Mainstream Schools (BB103) sets out simple, non-statutory area guidelines for school buildings and sites. It covers all state schools, including mainstream academies and free schools, except special schools and alternative provision.
Using floor plans and room use information, we will produce a Schedule of Accommodation which will be used as a basis to review the existing teaching space against BB103. This exercise will allow to identify potential lack or surplus or each type of space, which will feed into both school and estate planning. This information will also assist the design brief for any new works required.
