Education Interiors


For over three decades, PCI has been the steadfast partner of choice, collaborating with local authorities, schools, Academy Trusts, Universities and consultants to transform educational settings into vibrant, state of the art spaces. We specialise in the art of crafting learning environments that are not just functional but modern and sustainable too.

From primary schools where we breathe new life into their learning spaces creating fresh and engaging learning environments for young minds, we seamlessly transition to the cutting-edge world of University Hi-Tech Computer labs where education meets innovation, covering all bases across the broad spectrum of education. From refurbishment projects to fire safety upgrades, to helping with the decarbonisation process in schools and estates.

At PCI, we understand that every step in the refurbishment journey can be a challenge. That is why we are with you from the very beginning at the tender and design stage, working hand in hand to guide you through the process, through the project and then to the project completion and aftercare. But it’s not just about the work we do, it’s about the responsibility we shoulder.

Our team, rigorously Enhanced DBS checked, ensures safety and trust every step of the way. We’re not just about finishing the job; we’re about leaving sites clean, tidy and impressively presentable. 

Our operatives fully understand the specific requirements of working within an Educational Environment, Enhanced DBS checks are a minimum requirement for our Contractors and Sub-Contractors alike.

What is included

Cost Management

At PCI Ltd we understand that alterations can happen during a project, however our estimates are as realistic as possible, and we guarantee that project value will only increase due to costed and instructed variations to the tender scope of works.

We will always look to advise clients on any product or install alterations that may save them money presently or reduce maintenance costs in the future.

For all of our projects we put together a document to ensure total transparency of order and variation costs to our clients. We have found that having a clear breakdown of any variations, a tracker to show which variations have been approved, and the total project spend including any instructed variations against the tender sum keeps our clients informed of the ongoing overall account value, removing the prospect of any dispute at the final account presentation.

Time Management

We will work closely with you to build and fulfil the needs of this project by the completion date. We will do this by establishing clear goals and a comprehensive solution based on the needs of our clients.

A key part of this process will be an initial pre start meeting, during this our team of experts will review any and all systems related to the project in order to determine any existing pain points and/or leverage opportunities. We will develop a list of all solution possibilities based on this initial consultation.

Before the project starts, we will issue a programme of works to all stakeholders (client, sub-contractors and surrounding occupants) using Microsoft Project to set realistic expectations as to how long it will take to carry out the project. This programme of works allows us to update all stakeholders on a fortnightly basis by using the progress lines to quickly identify where there may be issues that need to be addressed, optimizing the allocation of resources to tasks or activities to further acceleration. By sharing the programme with our clients, it demonstrates full confidence that the project is under control.

Along with Health and Safety documentation, we see this as one of the most important documents on site and therefore we copy and laminate this document in A3 and place these prominently around site, updating as required, for all stakeholders to refer to when needed.

Quality Management

At PCI Ltd we aim to coordinate and direct all our activities to meet the client and regulatory requirements and improve its effectiveness and efficiency on a continuous basis. We do this by performing Quality Install Audits on all aspects of the instructed works to ensure clients have peace of mind when it comes to the completed project. We also engage in 3rd party auditors, mainly from our accreditations such as BM TRADA and CIOB, to assess the works are of sound quality, fit for purpose and logged before being properly closed.

As we work towards completion of the project, we have a strict protocol in relation to reporting and issuing snag lists using a system of internal checks and balances. The project Coordinator, usually with 20% of the project remaining, will be responsible for putting together a ‘completion list’ along with the Quantity Surveyor to make all component parts aware, in writing, of what is expected of them.

We invite the client to be part of any subsequent snag surveys, which will then be persistently monitored and updated until the completion of all items, ready for a thorough clean and handover.

We are incredibly pleased with the exceptional service provided by Parias Construction & Interiors Limited (PCI) during the execution of three DXR Replacement Schemes for Circle Health Group. PCI’s support ensured the successful delivery of these projects within a tight timeframe, showcasing their remarkable ability to meet deadlines without compromising on quality.

The team’s commitment to open communication and adherence to Circle Health Group’s guidelines resulted in a seamless integration of our specific look and feel into the projects.

Sam Forrest- Project Manager- Circle Health Group

I have worked with Parias Construction on a number of projects at Bedford Hospital, including developing a new CT Scanner Suite, X-Ray Rooms and Eye Clinics. On each of these projects, Parias have been a pleasure to work with. They fully understood the needs of both staff and patients throughout the projects and took every measure possible to do the works with minimal disruption to BAU at the Hospital.

Every project was complete to a very high quality and within the specified programme dates. The Parias team favour a collaborative approach by holding regular meetings and providing clear programme and costing updates regularly, which made the projects run extremely smoothly. I would recommend them highly for any Hospital related projects.
