Value for Money

Most school and education building and refurbishment work is usually carried out on a tight budget and everything needs to be carefully controlled. Our work with local stakeholders means that we can achieve the results you are looking for within the budget you have allocated. At each stage of the development process, we’re always honest about what can be achieved and the processes we use for giving you the new build you are looking for. With any project there are going to be hurdles to overcome – that’s why working with stakeholders and being transparent is so important.


Most businesses and organisations nowadays are looking not only to create great facilities but also to be more sustainable. We can work with you to introduce the latest building technology and create an environment that helps you cut carbon emissions and reduce running costs. On top of that, we source all our materials from sustainable suppliers and have a policy of handling waste responsibly, recycling and reusing where possible.

Health and Safety

All our teams, from project managers to those who work on our building sites, are focused on health and safety. Each individual is trained and up to date with the latest health and safety legislation and all work is managed under the highest standards. Particularly when it comes to refurbishments this is very important where people other than our own construction teams may be operating or working in the immediate area.
