Our school Refurbishment Costs spreadsheet is aimed at the 'light refurbishment' or 'makeover' project, where the basic fabric of a building (roof, walls, windows) is sound, and the works are targeted on improving the educational environment rather than fixing underlying buildings defects. Our experience as both designers and school refurbishment contractors ensure the spreadsheet is comprehensive.

Classroom refurbishment costs can be stated as a percentage of an overall spend if a fixed amount of money is available and needs to be allocated to spend areas. This route to budget allocation may be useful when evaluating individual quotes/costs against an overall budget. Cost allocation can be customised to increase the spend on one or two elements so long as there are corresponding reductions in the remainder. This allocation technique helps to keep control of the overall classroom refurbishment capex.

Percentage figures in the Allocated Costs model will vary significantly from project to project. The numbers set out above are provided as an example and are not meant to be hard and fast values for every scheme. For advice on allocated costs budgeting for your particular project get in touch and we'll give you advice and cost guidance which reflects the style of building you have.

An item not included in the Cost spreadsheet or in the allocation model is energy performance for a building or zone. As this work doesn't impact the educational performance its considered to be part of any expenditure on the 'fabric' of a building. However when considering any school refurbishment project thought should be given to allocating money to energy performance improvements if the building could be enhanced easily, and with a cost-saving that will exceed the capex costs. Reputable school refurbishment companies are happy to share cost information and advise on ways to make a budget go furthest, and here at Fusion we like to think we lead the way.
