Understanding The School Environment and Funding
During the course of these projects (9 since 1995) CCC have demonstrated a deep understanding of the School environment and suitability issues and curriculum needs.
Also where needed they have assisted us to secure funding.
From a HIGH SCHOOL
The school has a difficult site with geological issues in a sensitive planning location accommodating 1700 pupils; however, all of the CCC projects have been completed
to the programme set and within the budgets agreed.
The school are very pleased with the appearance of the CCC buildings and with their durability and low maintenance requirements.
From a COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL
Health and Safety
Whilst undertaking these projects over many years within the school site, there have been no health and safety incidents or accidents and no incidents
involving pupils or staff. We believe this to be a significant achievement given that we now have 1500 pupils and over 170 staff on site.
From a SPECIALIST SPORTS COLLEGE
The CCC team’s understanding of the educational environment has made our lives easier and given us the confidence to make often difficult decisions in a timely
and effective manner, whilst still being able to concentrate on my key role as an educationalist.
From a COMMUNITY COLLEGE
Good Design and Good Value
The total value of the two projects amounts to approximately £6.5M. Each project has been successfully managed and we are delighted with the design solution
and the value for money which they represent.
From a SPECIALIST TECHNOLOGY COLLEGE
Solutions Fit for Purpose
All of the projects have been completed to our utmost satisfaction and the work remains of a high standard as a result of the robus
and practical design solutions which the team have implemented.
From a C of E FOUNDATION SCHOOL
My main purpose in writing is to express our grateful thanks for the efficient way in which you managed the contracts on our behalf
and particularly for the fact that through your negotiations they were completed within budget.
From a GRAMMAR SCHOOL
Completion to Time and Budget
Following on the heels of this we again selected you, against strong competition, for our new eight-classroom block, which was again completed to time and budget.
It is worth mentioning that the new block started at very short notice in May and was completed within a five-month period.
From a ROMAN CATHOLIC SECONDARY SCHOOL
Experience and Advice
We have been particularly pleased with the quality of advice and guidance that has been provided to the school
and are able to recommend the Company to other educational establishments.
From a TECHNOLOGY COLLEGE
Working with stakeholders
The consultants supported a diverse group of stakeholders to achieve a building which has enhanced pre-school provision in the community.
I would not hesitate to recommend the CCC team to other schools.
From a COMMUNITY PRIMARY SCHOOL
The Personal Touch
I was grateful for your personal interest in ensuring that we got the maximum benefit from the building works at our school and the fact that you were always
prepared to work with us over the details, however small, because you appreciated how much difference they made to us.
From a PRIMARY SCHOOL
Transforming Built Environments
…... as I take in this now beautiful environment, I cannot but recall the first couple of visits you and your team made before the project started.
Even now we wonder at the transformation. We still feel that buzz when we look at our lovely Nursery, KSI Rooms, Library and Hall.
From a COMMUNITY PRIMARY SCHOOL
Communication and Transparency
I am bound to say that this project was managed by CCC in such a professional and transparent manner as to give us confidence in delivery
and to make it without doubt the least stressful of the several major projects undertaken in my time at the school.
From a PRIVATE SCHOOL
Demonstrating Good Practice
As you are aware the Council has been seeking to implement, within its existing design teams, many of the attributes and discipline
that was evidenced on schemes where your practice was engaged.
From a COUNTY COUNCIL
ELBG needed assistance with the project and CCC came to us via a recommendation and they have provided an excellent service.
From a MAJOR LONDON BUS GROUP
Long-term Benefits of High Standards
The flats are now fully let and I am certain the refurbishment will ensure this prevails for a long time to come.

Expertise Pays Dividends
Your effort and enthusiasm has been refreshing and your expertise has paid us dividends on the jobs that you ran.

Securing Planning Permission Against the Odds
... you secured Planning Permission against all the odds and then managed the professional team and the building project within the difficult
financial and time constraints imposed on us.
From a LONDON TAXI RETAILER AND REPAIR CENTRE
And our favourite, the most succinct of all, is a verbal quote. One of our Headteacher Clients,
addressing invited guests at the official opening, said the project was:
“ painless and seamless ”
