The Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) is a government scheme offering annual bidding rounds for Academies and Sixth Form colleges to apply for capital funding from the ESFA, and is to enable the correction of poor building conditions to adhere with building regulations and H&S Compliance. Each Academy of Sixth Form can submit up to 2 projects each round.

We have lots of experience working with schools to upgrade their buildings. One of our recent projects was Jubilee High School. We supported them through our services and working with a surveyor to secure CIF funds and provide a price for the works. We provided a solution for their DT building, which had a problematic metal clad roof causing water ingress and condensation. We installed a custom-made profiled insulation and single ply roofing system, upgrading the aesthetics, waterproofing and insulation properties of the roof. We also installed new rooflights. The project was carried out with minimal disruption to the school and students, and was installed under a 20 year insurance-backed guarantee.
