Paul Jagger, partner at Farrell & Clark, said:
“We are very excited to reach this anniversary.
“Twenty five years, particularly in this economic climate, is quite a milestone.
“We have to thank all of our clients who have given us the opportunity to provide solutions for their projects.
“We are committed to providing inspiring and sustainable design solutions in an effort to deliver the best possible education learning environments for our young people.”
Farrell & Clark has been recognised for the quality of its education buildings with success in many national and regional awards, most recently a project at the University of Bradford.
Crowned the ‘Best Sustainable Project’ at the West Yorkshire LABC (Local Authority Building Control) Building Excellence Awards, the Bright Building at the University of Bradford is believed to be one of the world’s most sustainable.
In August of this year, the practice received notification that their application for listed supplier status on the Sheffield University framework had been accepted.
Farrell & Clark hope that this will bring in new work in the educational sector over the coming months.
