FI was commissioned by the Ministry of Education for the government of the Cayman Islands to provide a Master Plan for their entire school system. As of January 2007, many of the Cayman Islands school buildings were either run-down or had been damaged or destroyed in recent hurricanes. Most schools had too little space for their students or staff to work comfortably in and as a result a rebuilding program was clearly necessary. The Cayman Islands Government wanted a Master Plan that didn’t just rebuild their school system, but transformed the system to reflect 21st Century learning values.
