Purpose

RENOVATION INJECTS LIFE BACK INTO OLD SCHOOLS
Renovating schools is just as important to us as building new ones, as we recognise that if we are to have any chance of meeting the global shortage in classrooms, old schools must be renovated and revitalised. We’ve witnessed time and again that renovation not only improves the space for existing children to excel but also creates new classroom places by attracting the interest of families wanting to send their children to a safe, clean and modern school.

In order to balance the budget of the renovation project, the remodeling of the existing property should be practiced as far as possible but not at the expense of sustainability of the learning spaces. Reusing the built construction can avoid the additional construction work that can help the school planners in reducing the waste during the process.


Overview

Nelson Mandela says, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” The idea of renovation assists the school leaders in repositioning the old fashioned and aging infrastructure for the future by implementing suitable solutions that include adaptive educational space solutions, as well as its infrastructure.

When you undertake a school renovation project or upgrade an existing building you want to ensure it will not only enhance school facilities but also students academic performance. 

Where we live and work has an effect on our lives, and this is even more important to help give our students the best start in life, not just in terms of mental health but also academic improvement. Incorporating good classroom and school design through school renovation has multiple benefits:

Looking at the deplorable state of this open heaven classroom of learning, we discover that this future leaders are being expose to scorching sun, unfriendly rainfall and extreme cold.

Recommendations

Refurbishment/Renovation of the school infrastructure and its premise can give a fresh start to students admitted into the school for having surprising experiences which can encourage them to explore more than ever before.The design phase of the process, which includes schematic design, design development, and construction documents and specifications, can last from six months to one year. Each step in the design process involves more detailed and specific information about the technical aspects of the building systems, components, and assemblies. The design process requires school board decisions and approval, with each phase offering more detailed descriptions of the scope, budget, and schedule. The products of this phase include sketches, drawings, models, and technical reports, which are shared with the school and community through public hearings, workshops, and other forms of public relations and community involvement. Community participation during the earliest stages of the design phase can be as critical for stakeholder support as it was in the educational planning process.
