WE WORK WITH ACADEMIES AND MUTLI-ACADEMY TRUSTS (MATS) AS WELL AS SECONDARY, INDEPENDENT AND SEN SCHOOLS, ACROSS THE WHOLE OF THE UK. OVER 40% OF OUR WORK IS WITHIN THE EDUCATION SECTOR, WHICH MEANS WE ARE WELL PLACED TO HELP YOU IMPROVE YOUR SCHOOL ESTATE; FROM THE FUNDING PROCESS, TO MANAGING YOUR BUDGET, RIGHT THROUGH TO THE FINAL WORKS.
Our expertise in this sector has been developed through long-term relationships with many Diocesan and Local Authority schools, and more recently Academies and Academy Trusts. This means that we understand our client' needs and objectives of our clients and everyone who uses the buildings that we work on. We have the expertise to undertake projects often in live environments, providing the best spaces to teach and learn.
SCHOOL CONDITION ALLOCATION (SCA) FUNDING
The SCA is funding given to eligible bodies to help maintain and improve the condition of school buildings. It is allocated to larger Academy Trusts, Local Authorities, larger MATs and larger VA school bodies to invest in priorities across the schools for which they are responsible. AHR is working with many responsible bodies to prioritise spending across their estates, create development plans, and design and manage projects through to completion.
The Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) is an annual bidding round to which academies and sixth-form colleges can apply for capital funding. At AHR, we provide a comprehensive service, from identifying clear defects through to securing the funding for improvement works to enhance your estate and, we’ve got a proven track record of success.
SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT WORKS
We provide a comprehensive range of schemes to schools and academies across the UK each year. Projects include refurbishment and remodelling, extensions, and maintenance and repair works. As experienced building surveyors and project managers, we’ll make sure you’re in safe hands - we can even help advise on budget costs and your future maintenance plans!
HEALTH & SAFETY AND THE PRINCIPAL DESIGNER ROLE
The health & safety of everyone on a school site is vital. We undertake an important role in influencing how health & safety risks are managed throughout each scheme we deliver and we’re responsible for the decisions that have a significant influence in ensuring each project is delivered safely.
As an experienced building consultancy practice, we provide a comprehensive range of services to schools and academies. These include condition surveys, creation of as-built BIM models, contract administration, employer’s agent, portfolio management, and geomatic consultancy services such as measured building surveys, topographical surveys, and utility mapping. We also provide Rapid Capture services which deliver low-cost 3D imagery, virtual tours and schematic plans, helping to enable remote working.
