Planning Your Refurbishment

As a school refurbishment company, we will help you plan the whole process as well as helping you to schedule the work, so it fits in perfectly around lessons causing minimal disruption.

Need help with refurbishing a washroom or toilet in your college? We can help. We’ve put together a comprehensive list of ideas to help your planning process.



All construction projects require a multitude of different skills and present many challenges along the way. School refurbishment companies understand that the problems and challenges we face daily are as much a part of the project as building a wall or installing a window; we accept it.

We also recognise that while the ideal time to carry out work is during scheduled holiday periods, in reality, the size and nature of some construction work is just too big. So, if required, we will help you plan alternative temporary classrooms and staff accommodation for as long as the building work lasts. Need to update your school washrooms and toilets? No problem, we’ve put a school washroom design guide together here.

 Health & Safety

Health & safety is a primary concerns for any school, and with this in mind, we ensure that all work areas are adequately protected to provide the highest levels of safety. All site cabins, storage areas, and welfare cabins are separated from the children by high fencing, and no tools are left unattended during regular working hours.

Our highly trained employed workforce receives ongoing training suitable to working in a school environment, and all staff are  DBS checked. In addition to this, our site managers are all SSSTS certified and first aiders. Where outside contractors are employed, we tend to stay with companies that we have used previously and ones that have experience in the education sector. They, like our staff, are expected to maintain the same high levels of integrity and quality as well as being DBS checked.
