We’re known as one of the most reliable and innovative university construction companies in the UK. Having delivered a range of cutting edge new builds and refurbishments over the last 45 years, we’ve been able to forge strong relationships within the higher education sector because of our reliability and openness.

Making the Most of Your Potential

We understand that any university will want to think long and hard about any potential renovation or new build. There are generally several stakeholders involved and we’re excellent at working with everyone, ensuring that we are as transparent and open as possible. Our clients in the higher education sector also, of course, want to get value for money at all times.

One of the biggest universities that we’ve worked with in the recent past has been Liverpool John Moore’s where we’ve carried out a number of construction and refurbishment projects. Over the years, we’ve built a strong relationship with the development team at LJMU. In fact, we’re currently carrying out the recladding of their prestigious Redman Building and installing a two storey, state of the art data centre at the Byrom Street Campus.

Attention to Detail

From beginning to end, you can be sure that Hightown will be able to deliver on all your needs. That can start with the design and planning of any project and lead right through to completion. We are continuously improving our project management skills and come to the table with a good deal of experience in dealing with university construction and refurbishments of all types.

At the heart of everything we do is a strong focus on health and safety. We are accredited through CHAS and all our teams are fully trained and keep their skills regularly updated in this area. That goes for any sub-contractors that we may use on occasion.

We’re also a university construction company that puts sustainability at the forefront of everything we do. We source from the most sustainable suppliers and we handle waste in a responsible and eco-friendly manner – recycling and reusing as much as possible rather than sending to landfill.

We benefit from being a family owned business that has been able to build a strong reputation in the higher education sector. But that’s not the only area where we operate. We’ve created new builds and refurbishments in the pharmaceutical industry, for the aviation sector and residential building to name just a few.

When you choose Hightown, you get a team that has all the right processes in place and can work with all stakeholders to bring your dream to fruition. Many universities across the UK are now investing heavily in their infrastructure, not only to put themselves at the cutting edge of research and education but also to help attract high calibre students to their campuses.

Choosing the right university construction company is vital. With over 45 years’ experience, when you build a relationship with Hightown, you can be sure of getting a team that knows how to deliver 100% of the time. Contact our friendly team today to find out more.
