Shepherd aims to cut school building costs by 40%
Shepherd is looking to cut the cost of school construction work by up to 40% with a new initiative launched in the wake of the James Review.
Shepherd will save money via its new ‘Options’ package by pooling the resources and expertise of its operating companies and supply chain partners.
Divisions within Shepherd include Shepherd Construction, SES, SES Prism, Shepherd FM, Portakabin and Yorkon.
The initiative will use standard components for projects and will drive out any waste and duplication through the planning process and project delivery phase.
The system will work for modular construction, tradition new-build or refurbishment but will not deliver a standardised building.
Gary Edwards, Executive Director of Strategic Development for Shepherd Group Built Environment said: “We have listened carefully to all stakeholder groups.
“Offering a solution that standardises the process, materials and certain aspects of design whilst leaving clients with a product that really suits their individual needs is critical – Options allows this.
“Whether for a nursery, primary or secondary school, there is no doubt that we can deliver school buildings for less.
“We’re harnessing our joint experience which has been amassed after completing more than 1200 education projects during the past five years, equivalent to £748 million of improvements across the UK.
“This experience, together with our transparent systems and our partnership working ethos means we can retain a flexible approach while giving clients far more certainty and choice when it comes to delivering their vision within their budget.”
