Education has been an important part of the work Ingleton Wood has carried out over the last 20 years. Although the types of client have changed together with funding arrangements, our teams have stayed ahead of the curve embracing new developments from central government in order that we can continue to support our diverse client base.
This client base ranges from nursery and pre-school provision to some of the region’s leading universities. We undertake a range of types and scale of project, from small survey commissions to large new build schemes of both regional and national importance.
More recently we have become involved in supporting schools make the transition to academy status as well as attracting both new academy and academy trust clients. In the last 5 years we have become the preferred partner of over 200 academies assisting them with their bids to the ESFA for CIF (ACMF) funding. In these rounds we have been hugely successful obtaining funding for projects ranging from vital maintenance works to whole block replacement and expansion schemes.
Our work continues with local authorities and London boroughs where we maintain a large number of framework commissions covering all aspects of professional and construction consultancy. These relationships together with those of large FE and HE institutions provide exciting opportunities across all of our disciplines.
Our work within the Higher Education sector spans over 15 years with some of the leading Colleges and Universities in the country. Across all our clients, the requirement to maintain stock and deliver exemplar architecture is paramount in attracting new students and promoting universities.
We have extensive experience of working within and alongside historically important and listed university buildings to produce solutions that are both sympathetic to the historical heritage, yet relevant to the modern needs and requirements of the users.
Our relationships with independent schools in the private sector bears resemblance to that of the state system. Although the drivers and the need for buildings vary, the requirement to maintain stock and deliver exemplar architecture is paramount in attracting new pupils and their families. Ingleton Wood remains a popular choice with many independent schools owing to our vast experience in delivering education buildings.
Whether your need is isolated to a small survey or you require assistance with respect to a large multi-million pound project we can assemble a team to suit your requirements. Our interest is in building long term relationships with educational establishments where these clients return to us time after time due to the quality of our service.
We always start with sustainability as a primary design objective, while understanding the financial challenges that face all educational establishments. We can help deliver energy or carbon savings – or both – and can help you to define your brief to meet strategic goals. We are used to working with Zero Carbon targets, LETI design approaches and many others, defined by the education authorities and higher education clients we work with. Where appropriate we can help you to apply for LCSF and PSDS funding and can deliver real projects as well as high level feasibility studies.
