- What We Do
Barker has worked with the Academies Enterprise Trust for over 10 years. We support the Trust with their strategic estates development, building compliance and capital projects.
Specifically, this work involves:
One of the Trust’s corporate aims is to “Deliver high quality, value for money support services.” The relationship we have nurtured and maintained with the Trust since the outset is a testament to the success of the partnership in helping them achieve this corporate aim.
Our collaborative working won us the PFM Partners in Consultancy Award. The Judges noted that ‘Barker has enabled the AET to reduce in numbers to be more efficient and focus on spending where it is required for schools and their pupils. They also batch work on properties to make it more cost-effective. We saw an impressive example of the parties working together and delivering significant improvements as and when funding permitted.’
