School Refurbishment Services from StanLil
Whatever the size or extent of the school refurbishment project we take on, we always go through the same detailed process:
1. Understanding the Nature of the Refurbishment
Sometimes the job is simple – a space needs basic interior services. Most of the time, though, the brief is more complex. It may be that the use of the space is changing, or that the school is rebranding. Sometimes refurbishment is about defining the activities that go on there. We take the time to understand the brief in all its detail, so that we can provide an appropriate response.
2. Signing off Plans
Academic institutions are collaborative organisations. That’s why we take care to talk through refurbishment plans with all the staff involved. Taking this extra care often helps to expedite the practical implementation. Often staff will offer insights into the school culture, or helpful suggestions that are simple to integrate into the refurbishment design.
3. Project Management
This is the person that ensures everything happens efficiently, to budget, and to the agreed deadline. Our experienced project managers liaise with 3rd party suppliers, schedule the phases of the refurbishment, and provide regular reporting on progress. Should problems arise along the way, our project managers will offer timely solutions to avoid delay.
4. Working in the Academic Environment
We’re well aware of the scheduling constraints in the academic sector. We often find ourselves working around the academic timetable, or around the school day. If the project needs to be completed during term time, all our employees are DBS checked. We always plan our projects carefully to ensure minimal disruption the surrounding environment.
5. Handing Over
Introducing the new space to staff is an important part of the school refurbishment process for us. Good project management normally mitigates against problems at this stage. Should there be any concerns, we’ll manage them carefully. We value feedback on the way in which we’ve worked with our clients, and we always try to learn from it.
