Protecting our future

Success in delivering to the education sector hinges on forward planning.

The UK Education sector estate consists of more than 45,000 Schools, Further and Higher Education Institutes. In addition there are also 2,500 independently managed schools and Universities.

The current UK Education budget has been valued at c. £88 Billion highlighting the Government’s ongoing investment in our future.

An integral part of this spend is the ongoing investment required to ensure the estates in which our students and teachers operate are not only conducive to learning but also safe and secure. Fire life safety and security within the Education sector is a major priority as we all work together to protect what matters.

Despite this figure we understand that public funding is not unlimited and all Public Sector spending is stringently managed and governed. To this end, we have developed comprehensive and cost effective Fire Life Safety and Security solutions to support this specialist sector.

Our range of certification and accreditation provides our Education Sector customers the confidence  they require when selecting a service provider to ensure the integrity of their estates and the safety of their pupils and staff.

We manage the critical assets within a number of high profile, Education Sector sites including Schools, Colleges and Universities. We support our customers in fulfilling their duty of care to provide a safe and secure environment for their students and staff.

From experience, we understand the importance of stringently vetting our Engineers to ensure their appropriateness for working around young and vulnerable people, as such all engineers are Enhanced DBS cleared, CTC and SC cleared.

Success delivering services to the Education Sector hinges on forward planning preventative maintenance visits to ensure that they do not interrupt scheduled classes, lectures and seminars.

Many buildings utilised in the Education Sector are of great historical and architectural importance, achieving Listed Property status and many hold very precious works of art. Our service delivery takes into consideration the unique requirements of a building and its contents and bespoke method statements and systems of work are generated to ensure the integrity of the premises and its contents are retained.
