Your halls of residence need as much care as your students

The quality of buildings affects applicant choice and student achievement – so keep yours in first-class condition

Getting back to learning

With education settings reopening, imagine students’ frustration if their university accommodation were intolerable due to currently unknown compromises to a building’s envelope.
Another disruption to learning and your students’ wellbeing will cause short-term chaos and, in the longer-term, a less than satisfying experience.

This is where a building roof and façade condition survey quickly identifies the risks, failures and quick repairs that are required, saving you from future bigger issues, and potential closures.
Many education buildings are built with little or no planned roof or façade maintenance. It’s no surprise that over time unforeseen issues may crop up. Such issues lead to reactive responses, often limiting effectiveness and durability. These buildings can be experiencing leaky roofs, failing brickwork, or dilapidating paintwork – which only damages reputation.

Regardless of age, building maintenance is an essential part of providing a smart and safe space for learning.

Helping to create the right setting for greater results

Building Transformation understands the education sector and has vast experience of working in populated environments with minimal disruption.

We create transparency about your building’s needs and how to repair, protect and maximise its lifespan. Our team of experts work with facility, property and building managers, surveyors, local authorities and building owners within the education industry across the UK. Our DBS-checked team have the experience to create bespoke roof and façade maintenance solutions for any education building.

Since commitment to sustainability is more important than ever, educational settings are under increasing pressure to demonstrate sustainable and innovative building maintenance solutions. We dig deep to understand the nature of your building, its condition, the risks and opportunities and its own unique needs.

With a roof and façade investigation survey, we’ll put you in the know.

Do education settings influence success?

Studies have highlighted that a positive education setting can significantly increase student academic achievements. It makes perfect sense that students perform significantly better in well maintained environments that are conducive to learning and academic performance.

The London School of Economics found that over a third of students had rejected a university due to the quality of its buildings and lack of facilities (research led by the LSE Estates Division and the HEDQF).
