Our Sectors: Education

You could say Synergy is ‘marinated’ in construction projects for education. They have been a core part of our business for over 50 years and is a sector in which we are proud to be leaders. We understand how hard educational buildings need to work, in terms of both the learning environment and on a financial level. We take great pride in our projects and never lose focus on the brief, making certain that time, cost and quality are balanced accordingly. We are committed to a hands-on approach and offer a partner led service on all of our school projects. Many of our partners and senior staff are school governors and therefore have a detailed understanding of the pressures that schools face. We believe this working knowledge and experience enables us to see projects from a school perspective, allowing us first to understand and interpret the brief well and in turn deliver a project that truly meets the needs of the school and its pupils.


Synergy has significant experience in working with Academies and Trusts. We offer a partner led service that includes advice on maintenance and repair, space planning, alterations and extensions to their existing buildings as well as feasibility and design of new buildings.

Our Quantity Surveyors and Project Managers have advised more than 20 academies on the construction process between the local authority/PfS and framework contractors, aimed at protecting the academies interests and driving out the best value possible from the finite PfS ring-fenced funding.

Our multi-disciplinary practice means we offer our school clients a cohesive approach for all their building projects, and we always ensure a focus on practical and innovative solutions. We listen carefully to our clients brief and look to offer the best value for money whilst minimising disruption to the ‘day to day’ running of the school.

We have significant expertise in the preparation of CIF bid applications for our Academies and we understand the importance of formulating robust and bespoke applications to ensure the best chance of securing funds for capital projects.
