Schools and Colleges
We are accustomed to working in ‘live’ school environments and are fully aware of the sensitivities involved.
Schools and colleges
Armfield Construction has been actively involved in the education sector for several years.
Today, this work still represents a significant proportion of our portfolio and includes state and private schools and colleges. Contracts range from the construction of new buildings and facilities to ongoing refurbishment work. Project values range from £100,000 to £4 million.
Our involvement within the education sector can be as main contractor, or on a traditional design and build basis, or stage tendering basis. But whatever the level and nature of our involvement, our aim, always, is to create spaces and structures that will stimulate and motivate students and teaching staff alike.
Equally important is the attention we give to the planning and logistics of each project. We recognise the importance of building flexibility into work schedules to ensure minimal disruption to day-to-day activities, especially in term time and around exam periods.
When working in ‘live’ educational environments we are also fully aware of the sensitivities involved and the need to safeguard the welfare of pupils and staff. All on-site employees and contractors have full and current DBS clearance (Disclosure and Barring Service). Where appropriate we also conduct on-site briefings to ensure people are aware of potential hazards.
