Compass provides expert advice to clients within the education sector. We understand the challenges that face education providers when managing their estates. Restricted project timescales, minimising disruption to teaching and compliance with particular building standards all require specific education experience to achieve successful outcomes.

We have a proven track record of submitting successful funding applications and delivering on the subsequent building projects to an exacting standard.

The rise of academies and multi academy trusts over the last 15 years has driven the standard of built assets within the education sector. Academies that are part of a wider group with access to central funding and consistent standards across estates allows for greater asset management controls and proactive maintenance. Using our technical knowledge to save money and minimise disruption to our education clients is truly rewarding work.
