PSG's Autumn Newsletter 2019

PSG new header banner


Hello and welcome to our newsletter. I hope that you all have had a good break over the summer and are now refreshed and ready for the months ahead.

For many of you that are in regular communication with us and/or are avid readers of our blogs you will know that we have continued to maintain our excellent property service delivery function whilst keeping pace with modern technologies and engaging with customers and clients. 

The numbers of schools, including academies and external clients that continue to buy back into our service is extremely positive.

The service provision for repairs and planned maintenance, continues to thrive whilst project related commissions for refurbishment, extensions and new build, to meet the demand of pupil places, continues to keep the team very busy. 

In respect of technologies we are investing and expanding our full-scale 3D photography and laser scanning and also a new drone service. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

With new technologies brings demand for training and I am pleased to say that many of the team have benefitted from the investment in training as you will see below.

As money always remains a significant issue when considering projects, I do encourage you to invite us to support and guide you at an early stage when contemplating any building related projects.  We have a breadth of knowledge, expertise and experience across the team and we are always available to provide advice.

We are always very grateful for your feedback. Without this we would be unaware of any issues and improve services, which is of paramount importance to us.  Therefore I encourage you all to make comments with regards to PSG either directly to me or one of the team.  We promise to continue to not only work hard but work better!

Best wishes, Steve Carpenter

CIF Bids for Academy Schools & Sixth Form Colleges

The 2020-21 submission deadline is December.   

ESFA feedback from last year's submissions was that bids were marked down due to a lack of contribution from the academy/ college.  The academy/college should also keep track of any evidence of impact on teaching (photographic evidence) associated with the required work and keep a record of repair work invoices.  This will assist in providing evidence to support the bid.

Our consultancy service will support the application process on a ‘no-win-no-fee’ basis if you agree to award the professional services contracts to PSG once funding has been awarded. 

Now is the time to think about your condition requirements so contact us on 01743 281079.
