More and more universities nowadays are looking to invest in new infrastructure. Not only can it help provide state of the art teaching facilities and promote cutting edge research and development, it also plays a significant role in attracting high quality students from all across the globe.

If you’re planning a new build or refurbishment at your university, you want to be sure and choose a construction company that has plenty of experience and can deliver on your expectations.

Hightown Group have some 40 years’ experience of university construction. We’ve worked with institutions such as John Moore’s University, working on a variety of projects to help improve existing stock and create exciting new builds. We’ve helped refurbish student café areas and put in new ultra-modern lab facilities, we’ve changed the face of many buildings with safe, high quality cladding and helped introduce new electrical and energy efficient systems.

Key to our success when working with universities across the North West and the rest of the UK, is our open and transparent approach. It’s something that we bring to any project whether it’s a refurbishment or a large project involving a new construction. We believe in good communication with stakeholders which means you’ll always be kept in the loop and know what’s going on. We’re an experienced construction team that works across a variety of sectors including the pharmaceutical industry, aviation and retail. We understand university processes and are always willing to answer questions and be flexible in our approach.

Hightown can take your project from the initial planning stage right through to completion or work with designers and architects who are already on board. We have a range of strong project management processes in place which means you can be confident you’re getting exactly what you want, delivered on time by an expert team. Whether you are looking for new build or the refurbishment of an existing building, we can deliver on your expectations.

We’re always conscious that universities are busy places and closing down is simply not an option most of the time. Our health and safety procedures are second to none and are some of the best in the construction industry today. We work with all our stakeholders to ensure that disruption is kept to a minimum. That means students and lecturers can go about their business while we get on with the task of building your new project. All areas where work is being carried out are securely partitioned off and strict protocols followed to ensure everyone stays safe.

At the heart of everything that Hightown does is sustainability. We know this is becoming more and more important for institutions such as universities. We believe in sourcing the best materials in an eco-friendly way – it’s something we have built into our processes over the years and it’s something we expect of all our suppliers and contractors too. We also ensure that any waste is dealt with ethically. That means we recycle and repurpose as much as possible with very little going to landfill.
