Education & Local Councils
Gee Construction has developed long-standing relationships with schools and universities. We have a reputation for the highest standards of design, specification, workmanship, and quality. Our Client service level and ability to complete the project on time are second to none. With a 150 year track record of quality and service, educational organisations across the South-East trust Gee Construction to deliver expert construction projects. These range from interior fit -outs and refurbishment, to delicate restoration of listed and heritage buildings. We have been awarded contracts across the education spectrum, from mainstream and special needs schools through to major colleges and universities. We recognise that schools and colleges are pivotal to a community.
Understanding Educational establishments
We have shown over many years our in-depth understanding of the central considerations for building projects in educational centres. These include:
- Scheduling work outside of the educational operation times wherever possible
- Safeguarding/DBS checked staff
- Specifying features tailored to end-user ages
- Asset and data protection
- Noise and environmental concerns respecting that many schools are situated in residential areas
- Appreciating the safeguarding priorities for schools, particularly primary schools
Our project teams are fully DBS checked and we can have any further checks carried out that our Clients require. This gives our education Clients confidence in our commitment to meeting their safeguarding and compliance obligations.
A dedicated and experienced Project Management Team with Education Sector experience
Our team of skilled professionals provides tailored solutions for schools, colleges and universities to meet the precise needs of the project. When deadlines are pressing, we can offer fast-track programmes and from day one, a dedicated Project Manager will ensure that work is completed on time and on budget.
Dedicated to delivering the projects on time
Gee Construction is highly regarded for delivering projects within the agreed programme, whilst maintaining the highest levels of quality. We view each project as unique and have experienced teams that ensure we exceed the requirements and aspirations of all our Clients, regardless of their size.
Minimising disruption to the local environment
It may be a requirement that the facility remains in use throughout the construction works so Gee Construction will manage the project to allow this. It is necessary to ensure that noise and disruption is to be kept at a minimum as well as endeavouring to schedule any exceptionally noisy aspect of the project to out of office hours.
Safety of staff and visitors comes first at all times.
To support the safety and security of staff that will be present on site, we employ rigorous audits of all the personnel involved in our projects and will ensure that all staff directly employed by Gee Construction are DBS checked. We take the management of Health and Safety of employees, sub-contractors, staff and visitors extremely seriously and we are proud of the outstanding record that we have attained. We will continue to review our policies and practices to ensure that Health and Safety is at the forefront of all that we do. We endeavour to facilitate these Health and Safety requirements by ensuring that all involved or affected are made aware of the potential risks associated with construction sites.
Restoring the old to reflect the new
Many projects may involve the restoration of Grade II listed buildings within schools, colleges and universities. We have a specialist team who are experienced in carrying out delicate restoration work and refreshing external façade to reflect modern requirements.
Quality is paramount
With a commitment to excellence endorsed by ISO9001 certification, whatever the size of the project, we are committed to the highest standards and use only top quality materials from leading suppliers to create practical and contemporary designs.
Exceeding our Environmental responsibilities throughout our projects
Gee Construction has attained the ISO14001 accreditation for our Environmental Management system and we recognise the growing importance that this has. Throughout the duration of our projects, we work with our Clients to minimise the Environmental impact of the development and to optimise the sustainable benefits.
