Preserving Academic Institutions

Few buildings shape us more than universities, schools and colleges. In our formative years, our senses are heightened by our environment, having a profound effect on our ability to engage and excel. 

Our management team will made recommendations on upgrading, reordering and extending the internal spaces as well as updating the building services. In terms of restoration (external or internal) our modern interventions are extremely discreet, so as not to distract from the character of the existing building. 

USL are experienced in working in occupied spaces, necessitating careful planning to facilitate the smooth running of schools and the continued welcome to visitors.  We have worked at a number of prestigious institutions including; Eton College, Dover College, St Mary's Colchester, St James Boy's School Ashford, and Chigwell School. 

Working to the highest standards of safety is critical in these environments, all our staff working on education projects are DBS checked and safe methods of working are high on the agenda.
