Readers of our page on Working in the Healthcare Sector will notice a certain similarity between the two. This is neither coincidence nor laziness. Both environments and everyone within them (students or patients; teachers or medics and other staff) require and deserve the same special attention, care and respect from third parties working within their walls or grounds….

Working in the Education Sector

Of course, as a building, a school is not inherently different to a house, monument or office block made of the same materials. In one sense brick is brick, stucco is stucco and concrete is concrete and the same technical expertise, craftsmanship and professionalism is required regardless.

However, working in a school is very different…

The safety of students and staff cannot be compromised for a second and everything that can be done is done to keep the school functioning safely and effectively during the work. The ability to carry out works safely while the school remains open can save both time and money.

Of course, work may have to be done out of school hours and we have the flexibility to work accordingly.

Prelude Stone offers both the technical expertise to carry out the work efficiently and affordably and the vital experience of working in the special and demanding environment of a school.

We are always happy to discuss how we may help, now or in the future.
