Our Expertise

Given the unique challenges that education projects can pose, we offer support packages to aid the process from start to finish. Working with you from inception through to completion, we are able to advise on all aspects of the construction process. We offer bespoke design packages that can be tailored to suit your specific requirements, Client experience and desired level of involvement for each individual project.

Dependent upon the size and complexity of individual projects we are able to assemble a full design team of specialist consultant which would typically include Structural Engineers, Quantity Surveyors, Mechanical and Electrical Engineers and CDM Consultants. Other niche specialists such as Sound Engineers, Lighting Engineers, Fire Engineers and Drainage Engineers can also be incorporated into the team for more complex construction projects.

We have experience in managing projects for the Primary sector. These include welcoming new build Reception Centres, full interior refurbishment and fit outs, classroom extensions, kitchen installations and outdoor facilities such as car parking, sports areas, playgrounds, and disabled access routes.
