"The UK construction market for Education represents 11% of total new build construction output and comprises Early Years, Primary, Secondary, Further and Higher Education. There are differences in the way these are structured between England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. In addition to state funded Education there is also an independent schools sector. Overall the UK has 28,964 schools, 410 further or higher education colleges and 135 universities.
The government has allocated £12.7 billion for Education projects to 2020 and beyond, many of which will be jointly funded. In addition the university sector spends almost £32 billion each year on capital projects with a number of major projects announced for the next 10 years.
After a fall back in activity following cancellation of the Building Schools for the Future programme in 2011, the sector is now starting to recover, with forecasted growth through to 2019.
The objectives of the report are to:
Contribute to the marketing strategy of businesses wishing to supply the Education construction sector
Provide an impartial overview of Education opportunities for the construction industry
Identify key decision makers and influencers in the Education sector, including clients, architects and main contractors
Along with the report we include a listing of architects’ practises identified as designing education projects in 2015."
