Meeting the requirements of academies and free schools
Understanding local needs and issues to ensure successful completion and opening

With a growing number of schools converting to academy status and more free schools opening, it is vital to understand the challenges faced in the launch of a new educational facility.
Our academy and free school customers benefit from our construction expertise, complemented by our experience in dealing with planning and legislation issues such as change of use provision, site mitigation and highways agreements.
In addition, we offer our advice and experience to support educational providers and sponsors who are setting up a school for the first time. We take time to listen to stakeholder requirements, and provide a logical and structured process to ensure teachers and pupils enjoy a seamless transition into their new facilities.
