Working with colleges and universities requires a flexible approach. Learning environments must be inspirational, accommodate the access and practical needs of their users, and be of the highest quality and safety standards. We have plenty of experience working with further education colleges and universities.
Our work for these higher educational environments covers their teaching buildings and accommodation, complete with gyms, cafes and libraries. Our contracts with the clients in this sector cover both responsive/planned maintenance and construction and refurbishment project works.
MAINTENANCE AND FACILITIES MANAGEMENT
Maintenance of a college or university is essential to keep facilities in the best condition and prevent costly repairs and refurbishments. It is a constant and recurring process, meaning some works need to take place during term time but also a lot of works need to take place rapidly in holiday time. We aim to cause minimal day-to-day disruption, keeping noise levels low and not adding strain to parking and access issues at key times of day. Works are completed around the clients’ timetable and delivered with utmost consideration of the safety of students and staff.
