Eddisons are a firm of multi discipline Building Consultancy specialists who specialise in all aspects of building/property advice, in particular the education sector.
Services which we can offers schools / academies are :
Capital Grant Funding Applications - Eddisons have secured circa £10m of capital funding for academies over the past 5 years in the North East and Yorkshire regions to improve the condition and/or thermal performance of their buildings. Other capital funding sources allow schools to provide new or refurbished sports facilities within their demise.
Design and Project Management - Our team of Chartered Building Surveyors can provide advice and designs for any refurbishment or new build proposals your school may be considering. We are able to guide you through the process, from feasibility stages through to completion of your project.
Planned Preventative Maintenance Schedules - This service is proving extremely popular within the education sector as schools look for guidance on what to budget their maintenance costs on over the next 10 years. Our specialist surveyors will provide your school with a schedule identifying building elements which are in need or replacement or repair and budget costs associated with each element of work over a 10 year period. This service aims to keep your buildings in a good state of repair.
Reinstatement Cost Assessment (Insurance): Our surveyors can provide you with a full reinstatement cost assessment in a worse case scenario that your building requires re-building. This provides comfort that your building is insured for the full re-build amount and that the school will not be facing any unexpected costs.
Condition Schedules: Aimed at providing the school with information in regard to the condition of their building stock
The above lists items are not exhaustive. If your school has any need for property advice, then please give us a call for an informal discussion.
