The HCD Group is the foremost provider in our field across the UK education sector and our experience extends to billions of pounds of construction spend. We have built an enviable track record within the higher education sector, serving a growing list of prominent clients among the country’s leading universities.
We are appointed to several frameworks with universities that include Oxford, Imperial College, UCL, London Metropolitan, Portsmouth, Southampton Solent, Middlesex, Bournemouth, Winchester and Chichester. We also have long standing repeat business relationships with universities that include Cambridge, Manchester, Bristol, Brunel, Brighton, Cardiff, Westminster, Roehampton, Sussex, Glamorgan, Sheffield, West of England and King’s College London.
As a well-respected provider of consultancy services within the sector we are able to supply critical input and guidance to delivery teams on whatever scheme is under consideration. Our involvement on campus has included the development of leading-edge facilities, ranging from sustainable student and office accommodation to high-specification laboratories. In all cases, an in-depth understanding of the relevant Building Regulations has ensured building control compliance on even the most complex of schemes.
Our participation across a wide spectrum of developments within this, and the broader education sector, means we are well placed to provide critical input and guidance to delivery teams no matter what the scheme under consideration.
“We have an excellent reputation with our clients who recognise our ability to continually delivery high quality, often complex development, ahead of programme and to budget. To achieve this we rely on the support of such experts as HCD, whose input into the design process is invaluable in ensuring our investment expectations are realised.”
