21st Century Education Sis Bfe Mena 2011

  1. 1. Delivering 21st century education.Meeting the Challenges of Delivering High QualityEducation Facilities in The 21st Century
  2. 2. SIS – a key company within GEMS EducationSolutions Introduction by Chris Kirk, CEO of GEMS Education Solutions School School Education Strategy Improvement Infrastructure Managed Schools Programmes Services
  3. 3. Introduction Chief Executive Office, Richard Stone 20 years experience in the field of international project and programme management, last 9 years focused within the education sector Experience in delivery through the Private Finance Initiative (PFI), Building Schools for the Future Programme and Academies Programmes within the UK Last three years based in UAE
  4. 4. What Clients Want• Achieve Value for Money• Improved Speed of Delivery• High Standard of Quality• Flexibility and Adaptability• Sustainability• InnovationAbove considerations are inextricably linked together throughout thedesign and construction process.
  5. 5. Value for Money• Balance the initial design and construction costs with the cost of lighting, heating, cooling, repairing and otherwise operating and maintaining the facility• Remember FFE can be a significant component in capital expenditure. Development of standard specifications and good supply chain management can yield significant savings• Land can be expensive and sites in built up areas may be restricted in size - maximise development potential of site by utilsing roof space for play and recreational uses• Maximise utilisation of space by ensuring that accommodation schedule is based on a proper curriculum analysis
  6. 6. Value for Money Use of roof space to maximise available play and recreational areas
  7. 7. Value for MoneyDevelopment of standard specifications to source alternatives andnegotiate supply chain agreements
  8. 8. Value for MoneyProperly integrated cost data bases linked to specifications willfacilitate better buying !
  9. 9. Speed of Delivery• Off site solutions such as modular or prefabricated systems• Components can be manufactured in parallel with securing authority approvals to commence work to reducing construction period• Not without some risk ! Proceeding with off site manufacturing before final approval can result in abortive work• Key to this approach : - • Early coordination of design • Relationship with Authorities flexibility is possible
  10. 10. Speed of Delivery Winchester School Extension, UAE :  Three Storey Building, approx 10,000m² BUA  Pre-cast system introduced for speed and to minimise disruption to existing school  Build time of 6 months
  11. 11. Speed of Delivery American Academy, Abu Dhabi, UAE :  2,100 students K-12 School  G+2 Three with BUA of 27,500 m2  Precast beam and column system  Piling to handover in 12 months
  12. 12. Speed of DeliveryOther considerations : - • Partnering arrangements with contractors – early involvement to ensure buildability incorporated into the design • Phased approach – build as required based on student ramp ups – essential to incorporate this into design at early stage to ensure proper planning • Clients with high volumes of work can leverage efficiencies by looking at standardising design and construction processes to improve speed of delivery
  13. 13. Speed of Delivery PHASED APPROACH TO CONSTRUCTION PHASE 2
  14. 14. Flexibility And Adaptability• Future capacity - consider building in for growth – future proof foundations and services• Flexibility and adaptability of teaching environment to suit new methods of teaching and developing technologies• Innovation should be a way of thinking integrated into the project life cycle to provide novel solutions to problems ! Innovation for the sake of innovation is just waste
  15. 15. Flexibility And AdaptabilityAdaptability of furnitureBreak out areas provide greaterflexibility for use of space
  16. 16. Good Quality Design• Ensure that the right people are engaged in the design development process – identify stakeholders early on• ICT, Educationalists, Designers all need to have an input to the design – ensure that their required inputs are planned into the process at the right time• Focus on making sure that Furniture, Fittings and Equipment are properly coordinated into the design – not enough attention is paid to this – needs to be done at early stage• Room Data Sheets and Fully Loaded Drawings prepared at an early stage will facilitate proper coordination of requirements
  17. 17. Good Quality Design and Execution Initial Development of FurnitureVisualisations Can HelpStakeholders have a fuller Plans to Coordinate Requirements of Stakeholders -understanding of how a space ICT, Education, FFE and Designwill function and look – this can Teamhelp to ensure that the design isappropriate for the need andavoid late changes in the designand construction process
  18. 18. Good Quality Design and Execution3D Renderings of Proposed FFE in Relation to Room Can Provide anUnderstanding for Stakeholders that 2D Drawings Simply CannotProvide for Those Unfamiliar with Reading Drawings
  19. 19. Sustainability• Use energy, water, and other resources efficiently• Integrate renewable energy strategies, including passive solar design and, where appropriate, solar thermal and photovoltaics• Integrate high-performance mechanical and lighting systems• Conserve and protect natural areas• Incorporate materials and products derived from sustainable- yield processes and/or are manufactured locally• Provide opportunities for safe walking and bicycling to school
  20. 20. SustainabilityWorld Academy, Tianjin, ChinaEco-City’s first School - aims to bethe most sustainable school in theWorld - GBES silver certificationEco-features - solar andgeothermal heated swimmingpool, solar PV panelsEnergy Wall will display real time information of electricityconsumption of the school and renewable energy harnessed – ecofeatures integrated into curriculum
