Smaller schools project strategy results in uplift
The construction arm of South West Highways has announced that it carried out £4 million worth of work for schools last year.
Exeter-based SWH Build said it had recorded a significant increase in turnover in the schools sector, doubling 2011 levels.
Established as a joint venture between two Sussex-based maintenance firms in 1995, SWH was formed to pitch for Devon's road maintenance contracts when the county council moved to outsource.
Since sealing the contract to maintain the county's 12,820km of roads, SWH has branched out and developed ventures in civil engineering, commercial building, traffic management and sign writing.

SWH Build was launched in 2004, and started to concentrate on smaller projects and extensions in the education sector in 2008, anticipating a drop off in the Building Schools for the Future programme as a result of the recession.
SWH commercial and build manager Richard Towl said: "2012 has been a good year for SWH Build, despite challenging economic conditions."
