Welcome to

The Education
Consultancy Partnership

Providing multi-disciplinary estate consultancy services exclusively to the education sector, from our extensive team of experienced chartered surveyors, architects, technicians, project coordinators and advisors.

With our combined support and guidance, you can be assured that any building project required at your education site, will be professionally managed from feasibility through to completion, with adherence to all statutory and advisory guidance and compliant to all building regulations.

With over 20 years of experience, at ECP we exclusively serve the education sector.

We recognise the learning environment as unique in terms of safeguarding, health and safety and logistical challenges. We aim to form lasting partnerships, so we can be part of the long-term refurbishment and development plans of education estates.

All of our projects are actively led by one of our director’s who will stay involved throughout all phases of the scheme – from obtaining the brief, to the design and construction phase, and beyond to the end of retention and defects periods.

We aim to form lasting partnerships, so we can be part of the long-term refurbishment and development plans of school sites. Together, we aim to provide vibrant learning environments for pupils. Read More About Us >
