Primary schools

We have a track record of successfully building and maintaining a range of primary schools. Whatever the type of primary school project, we have the skills and expertise to deliver it.

Our expertise includes the refurbishment and extension of existing schools. We also design, build and fit out completely new schools. We are experts at using modular solutions, including design for manufacture and assembly (DfMA), to deliver high-quality cost-effective projects.

We can offer schools with comprehensive facilities management solutions, including helpdesks, providing everything from catering to grounds maintenance and mechanical and electrical engineering.

Innovative solutions

Our innovative approach, using the latest technology and modern methods of construction, delivers significant advantages to our customers.

From enabling extra classrooms to be placed on top of an existing school’s roof to transforming a Police station and a disused office block into schools, we are able to provide a wide variety of solutions. This includes creating new classrooms, using a modular approach coupled with off-site manufacturing. Our approach enables schools to be delivered quicker and more cost-effectively.

In addition, our industry-leading green expertise allows us to deliver sustainable solutions, from installing solar panels to designing buildings that use natural ventilation.

A track record of success

Our comprehensive expertise enables us to offer you complete solutions, from construction to mechanical, electrical and public health fit outs and facilities management.

We have a collaborative and transparent approach and understand the importance of working with a range of stakeholders to deliver a successful project.

In Bristol, we have built and refurbished over 40 primary schools, delivering over 8,000 new places. In Essex, we have built three primary schools, creating nearly 1,000 places for pupils. In Scotland, we built eight new primary schools for Midlothian Council.

Facilities management

We are able to offer a range of facilities management solutions.

In Bristol, Essex and the Midlothian area of Scotland, we provide comprehensive facilities management solutions to a number of schools. We provide these schools with total solutions, providing everything from cleaning, catering to grounds maintenance. Our in-house engineers also look after the fabric of the buildings and carry out both mechanical and electrical maintenance and inspections.

A number of councils use us for mechanical and electrical engineering and maintenance across their property portfolio, including schools. We look after schools in about two thirds of Kent, for the county council. And, in Edinburgh, we maintain a number of the city’s schools.


At the end of 2020, we completed Mindenhurst Primary School, which is part of the new Mindenhurst development. It is located in the village of Deepcut, Surrey and is situated on the site of the old Princess Royal Barracks.

Our team of experts ensured the design fits in with the surrounding woodland area and has features that maximise the amount of natural light that enters the building. This means pupils will benefit from modern facilities that support their learning and development during their time at the school.

This two-form primary school has 14 classrooms and 420 pupil-places. It also has 52 nursery places with an external play area that is separate to the main school.
