J Tomlinson is an experienced provider within education. We work closely with Nurseries, Primary and Secondary Schools, Academies, Free Schools, Colleges, Universities, Local Authorities and Diocese to provide and maintain educational environments that positively impact and influence future learning.
Our project teams ensure any work undertaken is tightly scheduled with the safety, security and welfare of students, teachers, staff and the public at the core of our delivery. Often works are completed in live working environments where our robust management procedures ensure works delivery with minimal disruption to your continuing operations.
We can provide a complete estate solution from new buildings, refurbishing existing, upgrading M&E services and ongoing facilities management. As a one stop shop clients benefit from efficiency savings which is increasingly important given budgetary constraints and increased demand for student places across the sector.
We have extensive experience of developing and delivering sustainable solutions that support your environmental strategies. By focussing on the whole life cost of your buildings and assets we can help you effectively manage budgets whilst delivering exceptional facilities for your students.
Whether building a new sports hall, refurbishing existing classrooms, designing and installing new M&E services in student accommodation or providing Mechanical, Electrical & Building planned and reactive maintenance for your facilities we always focus on the needs of you and your students.
We have a good 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.
J Tomlinson is proud to be delivering learning environments that inspire excellence.
