Building Schools for the Future

Building Schools for the FutureWe have in-depth experience of working in an active school environment on both Building Schools for the Future (BSF) and Private Finance Initiative (PFI) works for main contractors and directly for the schools themselves.

Our distinguished portfolio of sports turf construction projects is unmatched in the industry.

Building Schools for the Future (BSF) is the biggest government investment in improving school buildings for over 50 years which aims is to rebuild or renew every secondary school in England over a 10-15 year period.

It brings together significant investment in buildings and in ICT devolved to local authorities and schools to spend on maintaining and improving their school buildings and grounds. This programme is based on strategic partnership between all sections of the educational community and draws upon the services of private sector.
