Pat Griffin, Design Manager for BAM Construction, said: "One reason we have a strong track record in the education field is that we are a collaborative company, and what drives our work is a thorough understanding of our client's needs and forming successful partnerships with them. Part of that involves understanding their community and the people whom their building serves, so the consultation is important to us and we look forward to hearing the views of local people."
