Delivering learning environments that inspire excellence
J Tomlinson works closely with nurseries, primary and secondary schools, colleges, universities, local authorities and diocese to provide and maintain person-centric educational environments that inspire excellence.
An unobtrusive, safety-driven approach
Our project teams ensure that all works undertaken are efficiently scheduled with the safety, security and welfare of students, teachers, staff and the public at the core of our combined approach. Often works are completed in live working environments where our robust management procedures ensure works delivery with minimal disruption to learning.
Budget-friendly refurbishment, maintenance, engineering and new build educational solutions
We can provide a complete estate solution from new buildings, refurbishing existing, upgrading M&E services and ongoing facilities management, with clients benefitting from efficiency savings – an increasingly important factor given budgetary constraints and increased demand for student places across the sector.
Low carbon and renewable energy services
As a specialist provider of low carbon and renewable services, we have extensive experience of developing and delivering sustainable solutions that support your environmental strategies and contribute to a greener UK. By focussing on the whole-life cost of your buildings and assets we can help you effectively manage budgets whilst creating and maintaining exceptional and innovative educational facilities.
Whether refurbishing existing classrooms, designing and installing new M&E services in student accommodation, building a new sports hall, or providing planned and reactive maintenance for your facilities, J Tomlinson always focus on the needs of staff and students.
Managing fully and partially-funded educational building projects
We have an excellent understanding of a range of funding requirements having worked on many externally-funded projects. This includes meeting requirements for the EFA, HEFCE, ERDF, LEP, HLF, and Sport England.

“We’re already seeing that the improved environment is having a positive effect on everyone, particularly with regards to teaching and learning.
The new classrooms have vastly improved our previous problems of sound travelling through the building, now we have wonderfully quiet and calm corridors and each classroom is carefully designed to optimise its use for the children. Lessons can now be far more exciting as we no longer need to worry about lack of space or disturbing the other classes. Both the staff and pupils will thrive in the new building and learning spaces.”
