Lancashire-based architecture and urban design practice Croft Goode Architects has appointed Adrian Bailey from Aedas to further bolster its education expertise.
Bailey has more than ten years' experience designing schools and academies and will work on a wide range of education projects for Croft Goode.
Mick Goode, a director of Croft Goode, based in Kirkham, said: "At a time when government is overhauling capital investment in England's schools, and when private schools are seeing changes in their own funding landscapes, it's important to be able to offer our education clients the best possible service.
"To have someone with Adrian's expertise on board, complementing our existing skills and experience in this sector, will allow us to continue offering the highest standards of design and project delivery to our clients."
Bailey added: "Education is a core specialism at Croft Goode and the practice has a great reputation for its work in the sector. I'm looking forward immensely to helping the practice deliver more education projects across the region."
