Burntwood school in south London by Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) won the RIBA Stirling Prize for 2015, with the judges commenting that “it demonstrates the full range of the skills that architects can offer to society. It encompasses great contemporary design and clever reuse of existing buildings as well as superb integration of artwork, landscaping and engineering. It is a genuine collaborative project. There was a wonderful working relationship between the headteacher and the architect: a true partnership of equals.”
SCP Contracts have worked with AHMM on a number of their projects in recent years, including the QEII Conference Centre, 240 Blackfriars, Dagenham Park School and Kirk Balk Community College. Each project is very different to work on, but all benefit from how AHMM approach them.
AHMM have been honing their unique approach to building creation for over twenty years. They are a very focused practice who try to make buildings that are satisfying and enjoyable to use, beautiful to look at and easy to understand. Working with them is a pleasure and each project benefits from their pragmatic, analytical and open working method.
SCP Contracts worked with AHMM on the project, supplying the Canteen chair and Canteen Tables by London based British brand Very Good & Proper.
