Universities face new challenges as the Higher Education sector adapts to changes in both the UK economy and government legislation.

These changes, combined with increases in tuition fees and competition from overseas universities, have created an ever more competitive market for Higher Education. The need for universities to continue investing in their buildings is therefore paramount.

Our projects range from small extensions and refurbishment works, including those within listed buildings, to large scale remodelling and new build facilities both on and off campus. From lecture theatres, laboratories, pharmacy and biomolecular facilities to faculty buildings, sports centres and student union buildings, our breadth of experience ensures you receive an outstanding and cost-effective service.

Our recent work includes a £23 million Art and Design facility for Manchester Metropolitan University, and a £15.8 million contract to construct the UK’s first carbon neutral laboratory for the University of Nottingham.
