Planning approval for NFTS Phase 2

March 16, 2015

The National Film and Television School (NFTS) in Beaconsfield is the only UK film school with its own film and television studios and post-production facilities, rivalling those of professional companies. The Observer Newspaper describes it as the ‘The Best Film School in the World’.

For the NFTS to continue to be a world-class centre of excellence for film and television, the school is now seeking to complete its redevelopment plans with the delivery of Phase 2.

In 2005, GHA developed the school’s masterplan to be delivered in a phased manner subject to funding. This recently resulted in successfully gaining planning approval for the construction of 2 new purpose-built teaching facilities on the site and improvements to the external environment.

Phase 1 – the Oswald Morris teaching building – was successfully delivered in 2008 by GHA and won an RIBA Award that year and a Civic Trust Award (Commendation) in 2009.
