Education Estates® covers areas such as funding, design, construction, management and maintenance of learning establishments across the UK – relevant to both new builds and refurbishments.

Throughout Covid-19, another global crisis has received recognition: the climate emergency.

With more than 29,000 schools, 380 colleges and 140 universities across the UK, this highlights the enormity and importance of the education sector. Decarbonising existing fabric through retrofits and refurbishments and successfully achieving zero carbon in new builds will be crucial in the race to combat climate change.

Other Key Topics for 2021 Include: Wellbeing – Inclusive Learning Environments – Condition – Community – Inspiring Learning Spaces – Income Generation – Technological Advancements – Heritage Buildings – International School Design – and many more!
