Education Estates and Facilities Conference 2018: Building a better future
“Having enough school places in safe, high-quality buildings in the right areas is a crucial part of the education system. Significant challenges remain as the population continues to grow and the condition of the ageing estate deteriorates.” – National Audit Office
With an estimated 60% of school buildings in England built before 1976 and demand for places set to increase, the school system faces a £6.7 billion bill to bring facilities back to a satisfactory condition. Safety is also a significant concern. In the wake of the Grenfell Tower tragedy, the National Fire Chiefs Council has called for sprinkler systems to be installed in all new and refurbished schools in England.
The higher education sector faces similar estate and facilities challenges with a third of all university buildings approaching the end of their design life. Unlike schools however, demographic shifts mean universities will soon see a fall in the number of students which will have a serious impact on infrastructure funding.
Join us for the Education Estates and Facilities Conference 2018 where leading experts will discuss how to tackle the infrastructure challenges facing the sector, from primary school to post graduate.
