Identity Consult undertake a full range of services within the Education sector including; Project Management, Cost Management, Employers Agent and BIM Consultancy roles involving both new build and refurbishments projects.
Education has been a key sector for Identity Consult since the company was founded in 2006 and to date we have delivered £250m of projects in the sector, encompassing Schools, Further and Higher Education. The type of projects we have delivered range greatly from small refurbishments to the development and delivery of new build masterplans which have transformed campuses, student experiences and the city centres in which they are located.
We have delivered a number of landmark projects and our Project Management and Cost Management experience is second to none, but our expertise extends far beyond this. We have delivered strategic commissions for Universities and Colleges, including the development of campus master plans and accommodation strategies. We believe that our role should extend to understanding the strategic objectives of the institution and the individual business case of each and every project. This approach is embedded within our company philosophy which, very simply, is to make a difference to our clients and their stakeholders. We therefore invest time with our Education clients to ensure that we understand their key drivers utilising our expertise from across other sectors including health and housing.
We are fortunate enough to count Lancaster University, Edge Hill University, Newcastle University, Hull University, Durham University, University of Liverpool, Keele University, University of Sunderland, St Helens College, Salford City College and the Percy Hedley Foundation amongst our existing clients. We have worked with a number of these clients since our formation in 2006, not just in the delivery of projects, but also in the development of campus wide strategies and master plans. We believe this ongoing partnership is a testament to the level of service we provide, with all of our projects led by a hands-on Directors or Associate Directors to ensure projects benefit from experienced and empowered individuals.
As well as having a highly experienced and skilled team with a track record of delivery, we are at the cutting edge when it comes to Building Information Modelling (BIM) in the Education sector and have a designated BIM leader within the business who is currently working with several Universities to map out their BIM requirements at a strategic level.
We are able to utilise the experience and knowledge within our business to offer a comprehensive Post-Occupancy Evaluation (POE) service to Universities, Colleges and Schools to ensure continuous improvement in the delivery of their projects. Our POE service combines best practice guidelines and utilises a mixture of observation, focus groups, interviews, workshops, questionnaires, benchmarking and desktop document reviews.
Our experience within the Education sector is both diverse in terms of the actual projects and also unrivalled in terms of successful delivery often in challenging timeframes to suit the academic terms.
