Construction company Pave Aways handed over, between April 2017 and April 2018, projects worth more than £15 million to private schools, universities, colleges and local education authorities in England and Wales. During the previous financial year, the company worked on education schemes worth £12.6 million.
Oswestry-based contractor carried out refurbishment work for schools in Dolgellau, Wales, for Gwynedd Council and extensions and refurbishments for Shropshire Council and Telford & Wrekin Council. It also finished four projects for Concord College near Shrewsbury including extra student accommodation, a new science block and dining hall extension, and the new Agritech Innovation Hub at Harper Adams University.
“Our experience in this field has made us the informed choice for many organisations when it comes to major infrastructure projects as our team – from on site to back office staff – understand the issues and constraints of working on projects in this industry and offer the flexible approach to ensure that teaching facilities are maintained,” said managing director Steven Owen about the firm’s success in education.
For the 2018-2019 financial year, the future looks promising, with the company already reaching more than £3.9 million on projects at Severndale Academy in Shrewsbury, work for Shropshire Council at Stoke on Tern, Long Mountain Primary and Shifnal Primary Schools, an extension and remodelling work for Tarporley C of E Primary in Cheshire and redevelopment of Castle Block, the former science building, at Concord College.
“Since 2007, we have completed 19 projects worth £19.8 million at Concord College near Shrewsbury. We also have an historic relationship with Harper Adams University near Newport where we have completed 20 builds since 2006 worth £20.1 million,” said Steven. “We pride ourselves on creating long-term relationships with our clients by offering a local solution, combined with the highest standard of construction and exemplary after service.”
Pave Aways carries out construction work across a range of sectors including industrial, healthcare, residential, retail and commercial.
