Schools and Local Authorities
Developing outside space for schools and Local Authorities has as much impact on the local environment as constructing the buildings themselves. Souters Sports is able to minimise this while keeping time and budgeting focused.
We provide a package of services to the public and private sector markets. From grounds maintenance to design and build projects, constructing soil based sports pitches and all-weather multi-use games areas, as well as all external landscaping and plantation works.
Souters Sports has in-depth experience of working in an active school environment on initiatives such as The 21st Century Schools Programme for Wales, The Priority School Building Programme for England and Scotland’s Schools for the Future. Through these schemes we often work for main contractors and directly for the schools themselves
The 21st Century Schools Programme
The 21st Century Schools Programme is a One Wales commitment and a unique collaboration between the Welsh Government (WG), the Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA) and local authorities.
It is a major, long-term and strategic capital investment programme with the aim of creating a generation of 21st century schools in Wales. The programme will focus resources on the right schools in the right places, for early years through to post-16.
The Priority School Building Programme (PSBP)
The Priority School Building Programme is addressing the needs of schools most in need of urgent repair throughout the UK.
This capital funded project will undertake rebuilding and refurbishment projects across 277 schools from 2015 to 2021.
Scotland’s Schools for the Future
Scotland’s Schools for the Future programme is committed to delivering high quality, well designed, sustainable schools. Driven forward by the Scottish Futures Trust, the Government’s £1.8bn project helps local authorities achieve the very best value-for-money for their investment in new schools.
