An important sector for us at Virtus Consult, we help our education clients develop better facilities and improve the learning environment, recognising the significant impact this has on young minds.

Clients have a vision for the future, from village primary schools to metropolitan university campuses and our highly skilled, multi-disciplinary teams have the experience to turn drawing-board visions into reality.

Benefitting from a sector experience we measure in decades, are clients like Cokethorpe School and Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council, which sought our support on projects ranging from extensive refurbishment and extension works through to the provision of a new Sixth Form Centre for Arden School in Knowle.

A key skill we believe sets our service apart is the ability to listen, carefully; to truly understand what a client wants to achieve, which might not always be the easiest solution to deliver – a challenge we are always happy to accept.

As education budgets come under greater pressure, there is little doubt our award-winning energy reduction programmes will become increasingly popular with education service providers of all sizes, in both public and private sectors.

So, if it’s time you cut your energy bills, we’d be happy to explain what we do. And how much you will save.
