We have worked in the Education Sector for over 20 years as direct client (EFA and MATs) and employer’s agent as well as being strategic advisors to Major Contractors.
We have experience of supporting hundreds of school capital projects (including ICT) whether procured through the Academies programme, Building Schools for the Future, Primary Capital Programme, Private Finance Initiative or conventionally procured school projects.
Our experience covers a complete range of services from site surveys and assessments through to major projects including redevelopment of whole school sites (see case studies). We maintain a detailed knowledge of funding streams, Government policy, education guidelines and initiatives related to the various schools status.
Our proactive approach in assisting educational clients gain funding helps to ensure that our service delivery is highly effective and successful in helping schools manage their property portfolio to maximum effect.
