“Galliford Try has just completed a new build £33m school in Oxford on time, within budget, to a delighted client using Corde for a one-stop design service. The joined-up approach of having all the relevant disciplines brought together under one roof has led to very efficient and coordinated delivery.”
Daryll Ifould, Building Services Manager, Galliford Try
“Corde were very quick to grasp the requirements of the project and identify key elements for delivery. They also grasped the complexities of working in the political environment of local government.”
Greg Bowman, Commissioning Officer, West Berkshire Council
“We have a marvellous school building that belies its tight footprint. Well-lit throughout and spacious, our school is a bright and wonderful place for pupils and staff alike.”
Someera Butt, Headteacher, Al Noor Primary School
Corde is a collaborative design team made up of ADP Architecture, AKS Ward and KJ Tait.
Our team brings together the three core building design disciplines: architecture, structural engineering, and building services. By sharing our knowledge and skills, we can design and deliver a new standard of buildings – without compromise.
Corde rewinds the process to unite the disciplines of architecture, structural engineering and building services from the start. By working together in equilibrium, Corde can solve complex problems with a simple, streamlined approach.
To build a better world, we need to measure – and manage – our impact. Our approach sets a new standard for sustainability, efficiency and use, employing innovative tools to explore how every project affects the people who use it and the world around it.
