School Maintenance

As schools, academies, universities and other further education establishments compete for the best students; the expectation of graduates and undergraduates for improved facilities is bringing new challenges to the managers of academic property portfolios.

The “Student Experience” is now measured and tabulated into league tables and every further educational establishment is seeking ways to improve their offering to attract the right profile candidates.

Property portfolio owners and academics are working together to uncover new ways to support student activities both academic and social.  Haven Designs has extensive experience and vision; our transformation of commercial interiors gives us a competitive edge within the academic arena. Our approach has enabled us to recreate dull and uninspiring spaces into facilities that stimulate and excite.

Haven Designs meets health and safety guidelines and all legislative standards.  We refurbish ordinary classrooms into modern, innovative, environmentally sound learning environments.

The Importance of Regular School Maintenance

School refurbishments make the institution more effective in improving and shaping young minds. Refurbishment expands access to fresh air and daylight, which has a beneficial effect on student health and education. A refurbishment is a great way to reduce operation costs and alter an older existing structure with modern amenities. At Haven Designs, we are skilled at blending architectural innovation with traditional buildings without spoiling the authentic features of a building.

With a wide range of furniture available, we offer different looks and approaches that can convert a classroom into a modern learning environment.  We have years of experience meeting educational needs and budgets while minimising disruption. Our school maintenance professionals can repair damages caused by flood, storm, fire, or simply the passage of time.
