We have a history of working with schools in the development and maintenance of premises and understand the importance of these plans on capital funding bids. We ensure there is statutory compliance covered within your premises and provide a reactive maintenance service for one off call out works.

Beyond this we have highly qualified and experienced specialists for each property requirement. Our Energy consultants, BEMS specialists Lift engineers, Senior Electrical and Senior Mechanical Engineers, as well as Senior Building Surveyors and Facilities Management professionals can all be consulted directly and will visit you to discuss your needs and provide considered advice.

As providers of property services to a large Council owned corporate estate we can offer access to the economies of scale made by tendering across specialist contractors, achieving a one hour call out service and unrivalled pricing for contractors (Oldham and Greater Manchester only).

We can also support procurement of the Corporate energy provision, consistently providing best available prices for gas and electricity through the bulk purchase agreements. Schools can also reap the benefits from participating in this scheme and it comes with the added bonus of energy advice and tariff management.
