AMA Research has recently published the 5th Edition of its overview of the Education Construction Market in the
UK, focusing on construction activity within the primary, secondary and higher education sectors in an age of
government austerity and continued public sector funding cuts.
The education sector has been a major beneficiary of central government funding in recent years with significant
capital funding underpinning a number of long-term capital building programmes and the expansion of higher
education facilities the main drivers for the sector. However, under the Coalition government education has been
one of the main targets for capital spending cuts and DfE capital funding will be cut by 25% between 2011-12 and
2014-15 when the department’s capital budget will stand at just £3.8bn.
However, the DfE is still the single largest client for construction work in the schools & colleges sector, and we
assess activity under major capital building programmes including the Academies Programme, the Priority School
Building Programme, Scotland’s Schools for the Future Programme and Wales’ 21st Century Schools Programme.
Overall, the latest trend for total education construction output values has been downwards and the medium-
term outlook is for further output decline in 2013 and 2014 to £7.2bn and £6.6bn as BSF legacy projects
complete and the pipeline of projects shrinks further. The forecast to 2017 indicates further decline of around
27% 2012-15 before marginal annual growth rates 2016-17 bring output to around £6.3bn and closer to 2004-05
levels prior to the impact of BSF.
In addition, the Report specifically reviews the future of the main procurement routes and programmes used in
education construction work, including the introduction of Private Finance 2 (PF2) to replace traditional PFI and
to be introduced under the PSBP.
