Capital Investment Applications

We have successfully helped Colleges through the application and bidding processes for many different types of Capital Application over the past 10 years and have achieved an outstanding success rate. We are confident that in future we will be able to make the best possible case for other Colleges, tailoring their application precisely to the requirements of the Capital fund to ensure a favourable response.

We work with architects and College staff to:

  • Write the text for the educational rationale and project description for the Expression of Interest stage to meet the current requirements
  • Write the text for the full Application in liaison with other professionals and the College management
  • Confirm and agree growth targets for learners of all ages groups and funding types with the college senior staff
  • Produce a schedule of accommodation that meets the curriculum needs and the space utilisation requirements, if required
  • Liaise with the scheme architects, project managers and quantity surveyors to ensure that appropriate buildings are designed or refurbished at an appropriate cost and quality
  • Complete the Investment Appraisals for the Base Case and Preferred Project based on Stage C+ costs
  • Complete the funding Application forms
  • Liaise with the College Finance Director to compile the financial case for the project and ensure that it is affordable as part of the college Financial Plan.
  • Assemble the complete Application and submit it on behalf of the College
