Scope of our Work

Our work with Beckmead Trust spans a diverse range of services, showcasing our versatility and commitment to addressing the comprehensive needs of educational institutions.

  • CIF Bids: Beckmead Trust, like many educational institutions, faces the challenge of securing funding for capital projects. We have been instrumental in preparing Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) bids, leveraging our expertise to navigate the complexities of the application process. This has enabled Beckmead to access crucial funds for vital infrastructure enhancements.

  • Condition Surveys and RAAC Surveys: Our engagement with Beckmead extends beyond financial assistance. We have conducted condition surveys, providing valuable insights into the state of their existing infrastructure. Additionally, our expertise in Risk Assessment and Allocation of Costs (RAAC) surveys has empowered Beckmead to proactively address potential issues, ensuring a safe and conducive learning environment.

  • Free School Work: Beckmead Trust's commitment to expanding educational opportunities led to our involvement in Free School projects. We have supported them in the establishment of new schools, contributing to the creation of inclusive and dynamic learning spaces.

  • Due Diligence Surveys: We conducted an 11th-hour survey to facilitate the seamless conversion of a school into the Trust. Our timely and thorough due diligence surveys played a pivotal role in overcoming challenges and ensuring a smooth transition.

  • Innovative Funding Solutions: Understanding the financial constraints often faced by educational institutions, we have actively explored and proposed innovative funding solutions for Beckmead Trust. This includes identifying alternative funding sources and developing strategies to maximise financial resources.

  • Support for Charitable Endeavours: Beyond the realm of infrastructure development, AMR have actively supported Beckmead in their charitable endeavours. This includes initiatives aimed at community engagement, fostering social responsibility, and creating a positive impact beyond the classroom.

  • Growth and Estates Work: Our partnership extends to supporting Beckmead Trust in their growth and estates management. By aligning our efforts with their strategic vision, we contribute to the sustainable expansion of their educational footprint and the effective management of their estate.
