Education

From the first Public Finance Initiative (PFI) school in the UK at Hull’s Victoria Dock, to the first integrated learning facility in York, we have heavily invested in new developments to support education across the region.

More recently, Sewell partnered with Hull City Council to form Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) Esteem Consortium. Together the partnership delivered a £400m education regeneration programme resulting in 21 new and refurbished schools.

Following the completion of the original programme the partners, working with the Education Funding Agency, went on to develop and deliver Aspire Academy, an alternative provision school, in the record time of 14 months and for less per sqm than the current Priority Schools Projects.

In 2017, Esteem delivered multiple regeneration projects as part of Hull's Visitor Destination Programme. This included the refurbishment of Hull New Theatre, Ferens Art Gallery and Trinity Market.

“The education regeneration programme was highly ambitious. Converting the ambitions into reality required robust planning, close cost control and a partnership culture. Hull’s school estate has been transformed beyond recognition and that’s thanks to the commitment of the parties involved, which very much includes Sewell.”
