McBains and the learning experience. Our clients have learnt we get great results.

There are thousands of schools, colleges, universities and training centres in the UK, and millions worldwide. Some are established and ancient, some are modern and cutting-edge. What they all have in common is that they are so very different from one-another.

The specialist provision of strategic management, construction and professional services to education providers – whether blank canvas planning, or wrestling with listed status – is an area in which McBains has great experience.

Our services and expertise are derived from a strong track record in programme, portfolio and master planning, new build projects, extensions, building reconfiguration and refurbishment to achieve greater utilisation of facilities.

Our experience tells us that the wants, needs and demands of educational establishments are ever-evolving.

Our expertise takes that experience, and brings together a combined management and design approach to clients and educational establishments which match or exceed that evolutionary timescale. This integrated and cohesive approach allows the project team to achieve enhanced design and cost solutions with single point responsibility.

Years of experience in this sector provides an up to date knowledge whether working on single conventional projects, or providing strategic assistance and delivery of programmes such as Building Schools for the Future.

If it's an educational establishment itself, or support function buildings or infrastructure, we're well educated in the better way to deliver results.
