SDA have significant experience in delivering projects in the education sector and some of our largest projects have been delivered in this sector. This includes schools, further education and technical colleges and higher education universities.

Projects have included construction projects, ranging from simple classroom refurbishments and extensions to complete new build college campuses, and engineering projects from rewires through boiler replacements to site infrastructure replacement schemes. In preparing these schemes, SDA have developed understanding of specialist facilities including learning resource centres, complex laboratories, engineering departments and healthcare training facilities.
