REAL Consulting is trusted to deliver education projects because of our comprehensive understanding of sector drivers.

We manage the development of designs for schools and colleges that keep projects within the strict parameters of the funding cap per student and government target cost/m2. Through early development and sign-off of the client’s brief, we have a head start in keeping projects on track and on budget. This enables us to integrate:

  • Any new budget pressures that arise, created by changing demands on how the teaching curriculum is delivered.
  • The diverse needs of user groups – education projects require close collaboration with many stakeholders. REAL Consulting ensures all relevant requirements can be resolved early in the process
  • On-site obligations – many projects are constructed on campuses where students are working. To minimise the impact on them, phasing of work and the operational approach is crucial.
  • The new academic year – this is always paramount and programmes must be scheduled accordingly. We plan short-term projects well ahead for completion over the summer holidays, when construction resources can otherwise be stretched.

REAL Consulting’s team has worked on many projects in this sector, from early learning to universities and colleges.
