Pegasus School CIF & Roofing Project


Field Avenue, Oxford OX4 6RQ

Our involvement at Pegasus Primary School initially started when we were approached by the Asset Manager to ask whether we were interested in making an application for a CIF bid on behalf of the school for new roofing with an approximate project value of £300,000.

We successfully undertook this bidding process and the school secured funding for re-roofing in the April 2017 CIF bid round. 

Our involvement has continued through to the delivery stage to manage key elements of the building project.

Surveys, Specification & Tenders
We were subsequently instructed by the Blackbird Academy Trust to undertake surveys of the buildings involved at Pegasus School, produce specifications and drawings and obtain tenders for the work.  We have now been instructed to proceed to request the tenders, let the contract and contract administer all works on site. This illustrates the comprehensive support that we can provide to Academies for their building projects.

Condition Surveys
The end result of the condition surveys we undertake is to provide the Academy with a report outlining the condition of all elements within each building. Any defects and capital replacement works are highlighted with a traffic light system to prioritise when they should be completed. All works are also costed to present a profile of capital expenditure to maintain each school over the next 10 years.

“I was extremely impressed from my first meeting with Ian Bridge Consultancy and this has continued through their work on behalf of the Trust for the Conditional Improvement Funding of which we were successful. Throughout the project they have kept excellent time schedules and communication with the school. Knowing this I feel confident when the building works commence that it will run successfully.” Jane Caffyn, Asset Manager, Blackbird Academy Trust
