Health & Education


We help the hospitals maintain full operations and work closely with the hospital to ensure smooth transitions for new construction projects we are undertaking. We have continued to deliver healthcare construction that serves the needs of our clients and their patients.

We have undertaken civil contracts at Southampton General Hospital, the Royal South Hants Hospital and community hospitals such as Moorgreen and Ashurst as well as work carried out previously for Frimley NHS Trust.



At PTC we are a trusted contractor to schools across the South. Working with schools, from the refurbishment or construction of temporary classrooms to the building of brand new facilities, requires careful planning and expertise.

We work in live environments, when students are at school, which means health & safety is of the upmost importance. But we also work intensively through school holidays to minimise disruption.

Our work with schools extends across a variety of our divisions. For example, we cover:

  • Civil Engineering solutions for school buildings, playgrounds and car parks
  • School Facilities Management including repairs and maintenance
  • Landscaping services for school grounds and playgrounds
  • Interior Design of classrooms and school buildings
