Pickfords has identified a 26% increase in the number of schools requesting removal services in the last year,* demonstrating a reaction to growing demand for school places across the UK.
Pickfords Business Solutions specialises in the relocation of educational facilities, helping with site expansions and full move projects to brand new locations.
Martin Budd, Head of Business Solutions at Pickfords, said,
“There are various reasons why we have seen an influx of schools relocating. Our clients tell us there is an increase in demand for school places, particularly primary schools, which has lead to inevitable expansion.
Another reason for this growth has been to replace worn out facilities. Modern schools constructed in the last 25 – 35 years have not lasted as well as those built at the turn of the century, so some schools have to invest to bring their facilities up to date to meet the required standards.”
