Every centre of education needs to be a place where learners feel safe, secure, comfortable engaged and inspired. The onus is on every school and MAT to ensure all of their learning and service environments are not only well maintained and equipped but are also fit for purpose and operate effectively and sustainably at all times. Of course, it’s not just a case of classrooms. There are laboratories, offices, sports facilities, libraries, common rooms, music halls, canteens, quiet rooms, toilets, and washrooms to consider. Many schools have a mixture of contemporary and legacy buildings and facilities, so it can be quite a challenge to optimise all areas of the estate.
Capita Entrust provides a full range of property and facilities management services to help schools make the most of their existing facilities and make informed decisions about any development, adjustment or expansion.
How we help
- We will help you to maximise operational efficiencies for every corner of the estate, so you are well placed to deliver the best possible learning experience for pupils throughout their time at the school.
- We will help you to develop a robust estate management strategy to reflect your longer-term goals and to identify and address potential challenges in the future.
- We always take full account of governance requirements, regulatory compliance and the continued evolution of the academic curriculum on the one hand and service technologies on the other.
- And, where existing facilities and structures present limited scope for repurposing, we will help you to develop the business case and specifications for any new buildings. We will also provide full project management support through to contract completion.
