Sewell Construction announces partnership with Hull College

Sewell Construction has been appointed to manage all minor building works at Hull College’s city centre campus. The contract will see Sewell Construction manage all minor building works at the college’s city centre campus, including replacing doors, windows, flooring and minor repairs. The company will also provide 24/7 emergency response for urgent works and set up a new CAFM (Computer-Aided Facilities Management) system to help the college oversee its maintenance.

Sewell Construction has been working on various projects with Hull College over the past few years, including the replacement of an extensive glazed roof and frontage on their Hull School of Art and Design building.

Matthew Blowman, Head of Facilities and Contracts at Hull College, said the college was looking forward to beginning the partnership with Sewell Construction.

“We’ve worked with Sewell Construction a number of times in the past, and they’ve always impressed us with their can-do attitude, and the way they go the extra mile to ensure all work is completed to the highest standard.

“We’re delighted to have them on board to ensure our campus can continue with the transformation to provide a high-quality learning experience for all our students.”

Geoff Smith, Construction Services Sector Head at Sewell Construction said: “We’re really pleased that Hull College have shown faith in our work by appointing us for this three-year partnership, and we’re looking forward to helping students achieve their career goals by ensuring they have the best facilities possible.”

Sewell Construction has a wealth of experience in education settings, with recent projects including the £14m refurbishment of the former Endeavour building into a new home for Hull Trinity House Academy, the creation of the state-of-the-art STEAM Studios for Ron Dearing University Technical College, and the creation of new vocational education facilities at Bradford College.

Highly skilled in working in live education settings, the company is an expert at getting the job done with the minimum of disruption to those working and studying on campus.

Hull College is a further education college offering a wide range of technical courses for school leavers, adults and apprentices. The college, which is rated ‘good’ by Ofsted, aims to inspire, empower and educate young people and adults in Hull to realise their full potential.
