Education

The best way to build for education is to understand education

Providing construction expertise across all education sectors

  • Providing facilities that enhance the student experience
  • Recognising the need to maximise attainment and minimise disruption when working around live education environments
  • Delivering a lasting legacy to benefit future as well as current generations

Our customers benefit from our expertise in providing some of the most innovative learning environments in education, created to inspire the people who use them.

As one of the UK'€™s leading providers of educational facilities, we understand the differing requirements and circumstances unique to each education sector - from primary schools situated on compact sites, to research facilities at remote university campuses, or student accommodation blocks in the heart of a city.

Our design and construction philosophy is to put students'€™ needs at the heart of everything we do. This encompasses not only the spaces we provide for learning, but also the safe segregation of our construction operations from existing education activities.

Recent projects include Carnegie Primary School, Scotland (the first BREEAM €˜Outstanding€™-rated Primary School in the UK), and the RIBA award-winning Kingswood Academy, Hull. We are also constructing the UK'€™s first carbon neutral laboratory, the GlaxoSmithKline Carbon Neutral Laboratory of Sustainable Chemistry, for the University of Nottingham.
