Education: Construction In Schools

St. Thomas More


Not all school construction companies are the same. Running through to our core is the belief that a teacher can perform their role best when they’re given the right tools for the job, and this starts with their working environment. That’s why we’re committed to delivering innovative yet practical school builds, renovations and refurbishments that inspire students and staff alike.

If there’s one thing we don’t need educating on it’s health & safety. We apply the same high standards of health & safety during every project but this is of critical importance during a school build or refurbishment.

We are experienced in working within live school environments and are therefore committed to sharing the importance of remaining safe around a building site with students. That’s why we give a bespoke health & safety presentation, catered to the project and audience, during every school construction project we undertake. They are designed to communicate to students how to remain safe whilst a school building project is underway. We aim to make this topic informative yet engaging by speaking to students on their level.

Our specialist knowledge of construction in the education sector along with our history of delivering high-quality projects on time and on budget, has made us one of the go-to school construction companies in the south of England.

We know that schools are often faced with tight budgets and timescales, which is why we work closely with the school throughout each and every stage of the project, keeping them informed and developing open lines of communication so any issues can be dealt with swiftly and proactively.

Davis Construction have successfully completed numerous projects for us over the past five years. They have always delivered a high-end product, along with a full service to the client. Works are always finished on time, within our budget and, on many occasions, with the client in occupation. I would not hesitate to recommend them or use them again in the future.

Alan Kelly, Group Project Manager, Aspen Healthcare

The new Library at the Shoeburyness Youth & Community Centre was our first project with Davis Construction. We found the Contract Manager and site agent to be very attentive and accommodating at all times. The work was finished to an excellent standard and was completed ahead of schedule. Needless to say, it was also completed within the contract sum. We have no hesitation in including them in tender lists for further projects.

Barrie Gibbard, Partner, Ayshford Sansome Architects

We have worked with Davis Construction for many years and have always found that their consistent and attentive support fits very neatly with our approach to providing a first class service. We have served The King John School, among other clients, for over ten years and have delivered a whole range of projects. Davis Construction are amongst the most competent partners we have engaged through this period. Their attitude is both practical and professional, and they provide clear management of the scheme both on and off site. The end results speak for themselves.

Lee Hatwell, Director, Munday and Cramer

Ingleton Wood have worked on many projects with Davis Construction ranging from healthcare and education to residential and private. They have always provided a high standard of workmanship and client care whilst maintaining a cost effective and timely service. On every project they have been responsive and conscientious, meeting client requirements and impressing with their professional approach.

Christopher Mabbutt, Senior Associate Building Surveyor, Ingleton Wood

I found Davis Construction to be diligent and willing to go the extra length to satisfy our needs. I feel they were ideal for this project due to the nature of the building and its age. I would have no hesitation recommending Davis Construction for any refurbishment/fit out projects.
