Our work with Universities and Colleges throughout the Country has covered internal and external redecoration of various building types including residential blocks, lecture theatres, communal areas, offices, highly decorative finishes to Libraries and Historical buildings, as well as repair work such as joinery, electrical and plumbing.
We work within many PFI/PPP schools around the country to give the SPV long term budgeting options and fixed maintenance costs. Our aim is to help the consortium or maintenance organisation achieve their contractual obligations whilst minimising financial risk through the duration of the agreement.
Last year we worked in almost 500 schools all over the country during the summer close down and therefore recognise the resourcing issues business managers are constantly faced with. Each year our business aims to have our long term agreements considerably ahead of programme prior to the school holidays. This allows us to maximise our resources within this sector.
Our work for educational facilities if often carried out in occupied premises. The presence of the public in close proximity to our workforce makes health and safety issues and unobtrusive working practices even more critical than ever. In addition to our health and safety measures, we work closely with our clients to maximise any opportunities to programme work during the holiday periods, minimising disruption to building users. When this is not possible, we schedule works in collaboration with the Facility Manager to ensure the presence of our workforce causes the least disruption.
All operatives deployed in works of this nature are DBS cleared and trained in the tasks they are undertaking.
