Constructing new school buildings and the differential impact on students

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In recent years, a substantial investment has been made in new school buildings on secondary school campuses in the United Kingdom. While there has been some limited research on the impact of these new buildings, no studies have focused on the inconvenience of the construction process itself and how it might affect students. Thus, this study looks at the construction of five
new secondary-school buildings and examines the differential impact of the construction process from the student perspective. The results of the study demonstrate that, while the impact of the construction process on students varied depending on the nature of the process, students were not negatively affected by the construction of the new school buildings. These findings
provide some insight into the nature and complexity of the construction process and how it is experienced by building users. As such, the findings can assist planners, architects, and project teams involved in the delivery of new school buildings.
