Developing Projects undertook a formal Council’s Representative role under the development agreement for the City of London Academy Islington.  The project focused on delivery of a refurbished and significantly extended Edwardian school, providing accommodation that allowed the co-location onto the site of pupils with complex special needs.  The inner city site is constrained and the project was delivered in phases to allow continued operation of the academy during construction.  Developing Projects also led a project to develop a co-location agreement between the academy and the special needs school, supporting a positive experience for both.
