School IT Design

This document is a guide to Kent’s quality expectations for integration of IT infrastructure with a primary school’s built environment. It was published in 2010 as a reference for Primary school capital projects commissioned by Kent County Council.

Most school capital projects replace buildings that are in poor condition, or where educational outcomes are compromised by the quality of a building or to adjust for planned pupil numbers rather than providing complete new schools. This IT Design Guide aims to ensure that new areas of build support a wide range of IT provision without future adaptation, and that remaining legacy networks meet minimum standards.

Intended Audience

Architects; builders; supply chain contractors and agents; IT Advisors.
