Sectors Education

With new regulation standards and changes to learning methods, places of education need to be meticulously designed in order to succeed.
Back to sectors

In recognition of challenging budgets and a business-driven approach to projects, schools, universities and colleges are seeking a clearer understanding of their whole estate. This is leading to a master planning approach that encompasses all of the properties and facilities each institution owns, resulting in an asset strategy that informs plans for expansion and rationalisation.

Given the sector’s close involvement in development of climate change strategies, all projects and programmes have to fulfill environmental sustainability targets. Environmental solutions need to be factored into core business planning and objectives to optimise the results.

Projects in the industry often take place within a live environment. Robust management procedures are therefore necessary to guarantee on time delivery alongside operational continuity for the college, as well as safety and security of students at all times. This requirement impacts on procurement, with contractors selected on their proven expertise in complex logistics, to manage projects safely and effectively, within the constraints of the client’s continuing operations.
