Education Planning

Education is the cornerstone of sustainable economic growth. Tetra Tech acts for public and private education clients to secure planning permissions for new and expanded facilities in primary, secondary, further, higher, and special education.

As the number of young people expected to attend university grows, securing planning in challenging environments continues to be a barrier. Tetra Tech’s experience in securing planning permission in challenging environments – including new schools in the Green Belt, Metropolitan Open Land within London Boroughs, and expansions in Conservation Areas and heritage assets – is backed by our in-house multidisciplinary team.

Our portfolio of successful educational projects and securing planning permissions for school expansions, new builds, or alterations to existing facilities draws on our expertise in ecology, landscape, flood engineering, geotechnical, and transport.
