Our solution? Free up more time during your summer holidays by opting for term time working. We are able to deliver your refurbishment projects during term time with minimal disruption to your school.

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Here are some frequently asked questions, and our solutions.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type=”row” type=”full_width” text_align=”left” css_animation=””][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

We need to use that classroom for lessons, how will this work with term time working?

If you are needing to use a particular space during the term time working, we will help you to find an alternative area somewhere else in the school to use. If this isn’t possible, we can help arrange for temporary accommodation to be set up during the works.


What happens if there are noisy works during the school day?

If any drilling or noisy works have to be done, we’ll make sure this is scheduled outside of normal school hours to ensure we don’t disrupt lessons or students learning time.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”20590″ img_size=”medium” qode_css_animation=””][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image=”20599″ img_size=”medium” qode_css_animation=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type=”row” type=”full_width” text_align=”left” css_animation=””][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”20600″ img_size=”medium” qode_css_animation=””][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image=”20601″ img_size=”medium” qode_css_animation=””][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

How do we know the subcontractors are safe to be working within our school?

All of our subcontractors and site managers on your site will be DBS certified, maintaining the safety of your staff and students.


We can’t have lorries and vans moving in the school car-park as this puts pedestrians at risk?

If possible, we will arrange separate site access away from main egress and access routes to minimise this risk. However, if this is not possible we will schedule all deliveries outside of normal school hours – either first thing in the morning, or later in the evening.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type=”row” type=”full_width” text_align=”left” css_animation=””][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

What if students wander onto the building site?

We ensure that access to the building site will be made safe and secure, meaning that no students or unauthorised persons will be able to gain access whilst we are at work.


What are the benefits of term time working?

Working during the term time will give you increased flexibility with timescales, because we are able to move start and end dates to suit your requirements, as we will not be bound by school holiday dates. Shorter lead times on certain products will also mean that we can achieve results fast. As well as this, we tend to have less projects happening in the term time, so when we concentrate on a term-time project, we are able to deliver the results in a shorter time frame. Additionally, more talented labour is available – many of our skilled subcontractors are more readily available during term time, enabling us to allocate the very best talent to your project. Term time working also allows you to spread your budget evenly across the year and minimise stress and disruption during the holidays.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”20602″ img_size=”medium” qode_css_animation=””][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image=”20603″ img_size=”medium” qode_css_animation=””][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image=”20609″ img_size=”medium” qode_css_animation=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_type=”row” type=”full_width” text_align=”left” css_animation=””][vc_column][action type=”normal” show_button=”no”]
