CIF (Condition Improvement Fund) 2022/23

R1 Construction are education specialists, and we offer a wide level of support nationally to academies and academy trusts that are looking to submit CIF (Condition Improvement Fund) funding applications to the DFE for building and improvement works.

We offer free, no obligation consultations and can help provide all the necessary condition survey and detailed costing information required to fully support your funding bid.

With the DfE looking to maximise the deliverables of funding made available, it is important that any construction project you are considering a funding application for is well progressed through the design, development, contractor selection and planning stages to maximise your opportunity of securing the necessary funding for its delivery.

R1 Construction specialise in offsite construction methods which offer significant advantages to any new build, extension or modular building replacement project due to the cost-effective delivery, minimal disruption and reduced on site construction programmes.
