The one thing that any educational organisation needs is great facilities. That goes for whether you’re a school, college or university. Making the most of any investment in this area is important and we’ve worked with school heads, governors and deans to make sure that we always deliver value for money.
At Hightown, we’ve been providing cutting edge refurbishments for education for the last 40 years or more. As a family owned business, it’s something that we have a strong attachment to and it’s an area that always drives our desire to always bring our A game to each project.
Why Have Your Building Refurbished?
Many educational establishments have fairly old building stock. With budgets often limited, there’s a choice between either creating something entirely new or doing something with what you already have.
A refurbishment can not only make your school or university building look practically new but it should vastly improve your facilities, boosting the quality of education you provide for pupils and students.
A refurbishment also gives you the chance to introduce better insulation, new heating and lighting to reduce the amount you spend on utilities. You can design state of the art new laboratories or lecture rooms with greater connectivity. Or you can choose to provide a hi-tech library or IT facilities for everyone.
All this enables staff to deliver a much better teaching and learning experience to pupils and students. A great refurbishment should also mean you lower your ongoing maintenance costs as well as setting your organisation apart as a leader in education. Today’s modern refurbishments can certainly achieve a lot. If you get the right team in.
What Hightown Can Offer
Over the years, we’ve worked with a wide range of different schools, colleges and universities across the UK. One of our most long standing relationships is with Liverpool John Moore’s University where we’ve helped create a number of refurbishments and new builds over the years.
Our aim as a building and construction company is to help take your project from the initial idea stage, through to design and final completion. Our teams can get involved at any stage of the process.
We work closely with all stakeholders to make sure that everyone is kept in the loop and you can be sure our staff totally believe in an open and transparent processes. It’s something that drives trust and the reason why organisations like Liverpool John Moore’s come back to us when they have further projects planned. They know we can deliver on their expectations.
Many schools and colleges need to continue to operate while refurbishments are being carried out and we work hard to ensure that high health and safety standards are met while ensuring that disruption is kept to the minimum.
Our teams are all fully trained and committed to delivering exceptional standards in building and refurbishment. We’re also a construction business that has sustainability built into it all its practices. We look to recycle and reuse rather than sending waste to landfill and we work with suppliers who share our ethos.
If you want to work with a building company that has an eco-friendly and sustainable approach, we can certainly deliver in that respect. Contact us today to find out more.
