When is the Best Time for School Renovations?
The question of when is the best time to perform school remodelling and renovations crops up over and over again, and there is no easy answer. While it might seem more beneficial to perform any major renovation of a school building outside of term-time, matters are rarely that clear cut.
Here at Westcountry Group, we are a leading school renovation company covering both the South West and South East regions.
The School Schedule
While most schools prefer to plan their renovations during the school holidays to avoid disruption to staff and students, it is also possible to undertake the work during term-time, which offers many benefits.
From more flexibility in project start dates to lower costs, shorter lead times on parts, and faster work turnaround, there’s no reason you shouldn’t undertake renovation projects during the academic year. We can even arrange noisier work outside of schools hours (e.g. weekends, before or after lessons) to help accommodate the changes.
Westcountry Group has more than forty five years’ experience refurbishing classrooms in schools, colleges, and universities across the South of England. We work closely with you to find the best way of working to minimise any disruption to your educational facility.
Another benefit of arranging your classroom refurbishments for term-time is that designers and contractors are often more readily available. The summer months are a busy time for fitters and builders of all types. Renovation and refurbishment jobs are most often arranged for the summer, simply because classrooms are generally left empty for several months.
If you’re prepared to think outside the box and grant us access to your school during term-time, you will often find it easier to confirm a start date that suits your requirements, especially if the work is required at short notice.
Members of your team are likely to be more readily available during term-time as well meaning that any questions or issues can be addressed more quickly, allowing the work to go ahead on schedule.
