BDS employ engineers whom have experience in providing structural design for education centres in prisons to help reform prisoners on release. These structures require a great deal of planning so that they can be installed in one operation to meet high security requirements.
BDS have been employed by contractors to provide structural reports and structural design for primary and secondary schools in York and Sheffield. These designs provided quick installation during school holidays. This allowed the schools to be opened during term time ready for safe use by the pupils and staff.
