SKUB is a comprehensive school development and expansion programme of the city of Gentofte, Denmark. It ran from 1998 through 2009 and involved visionary restructuring and rebuilding of all 12 schools – as well as the new Hellerup Skole. The project budget was 1.5 billion Danish krones (£170 million) – and also included afternoon clubs, sports halls, community libraries in schools and dental clinics for children.
