How does it work?

Fully experienced Specification Managers will undertake a comprehensive roof survey to include condition reports, specifications, photographic evidence (internally as well as externally), appropriate drawings and initial costings. These are forwarded to the educational surveyors, who will then provide a consultation with the school to discuss the process and to construct a proposal to the CIF that will secure funding for any specific works. The services undertaken are provided at no cost to the school and should the bids be successful, the surveyors will then place the works out to tender.

Don’t wait until September to contact us, the earlier we can start the process of preparing the bid the more likely it will be successful. There is no financial commitment to the school at all, and there is no disadvantage if you contact us right now.
