Delegates at Education Estates had many of the same challenges, whether they were from a secondary, further or higher education establishment. People were hard pressed to choose just one answer, but with many of them being responsible for the school estate, concerns around the journey to Net Zero came out top, with several not knowing where to start or in what order to take the steps they needed. Other focus areas were around condition of buildings, operational running costs and pupil planning. We posed the question ‘What’s your biggest estates challenge?’ The results were as follows:
Journey to Net Zero – 24%
Addressing condition issues – 22%
Operational running costs – 20%
