Education

Designing, delivering and managing schools, colleges and universities

Our construction, mechanical and engineering, fire and security and FM divisions work together to create inspiring learning environments that are fit for purpose

Student, staff and visitor safety is paramount, whether we’re fitting out new classrooms, upgrading CCTV systems or anything in between. Our DBS-checked teams work day and night shifts to finish during holiday periods, incorporating off-site construction to save time. When the work impacts building users (inside or outside term time), we adopt a phased approach, work nights, remove hazards during the day, create temporary access routes, and escort people through live works when necessary.

All employees attend role-specific asbestos awareness or management training designed by CBES and approved by UKATA (UK Asbestos Training Association).

We consider lifecycle costing by recommending reliable assets (based on reactive callout data) to reduce downtime disruption and send fewer faulty parts to landfill.
