Academy CIF bid success!
Following a very busy period preparing Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) bids for academies we are delighted to announce that our Building Surveying team has helped to secure funding for 48 projects with a total value of around £14.2 million.
The Education Funding Agency (EFA) set the highest condition CIF priorities this year as compliance and health and safety, followed by projects to address the most significant building condition issues. Synergy’s successful bids covered a wide range of projects within the EFA’s target objectives including, roofing, replacement windows, new boilers and heating systems, replacement buildings and safeguarding.
Applications to the CIF were invited from academies and sixth form colleges in the autumn, with bids due in before Christmas. In all, the EFA announced funding of over £435 million for 1,276 projects across 1,030 academies and sixth-form colleges.
