This project is part of Southampton City Councils £13 million investment plan for the development of modern learning environments for pupils replacing old, time expired school accommodation. The Banister Infant and Nursery School Project is to the forefront of the UK’s local authority ambitions to drive down the cost of public sector buildings.

This Tekla software provided the detailing team with the modelling tools to improve quality and customer satisfaction through the Building Information Modelling (BIM) environment, throughout the design process.
