Education providers are faced with ever changing statutory and governance requirements, advancements in technology, and in many instances significant legacy estates which require maintaining whilst also offering huge investment potential.

All of the above give rise to the requirement for new development, but within tight governance.  Monaghans' experience across the sector, and best practice draw from other sectors, allows us to provide pragmatic advice within the framework of governance.

Higher Education

Monaghans has supported several higher education institutions with strategic advice, estate rationalisation, maintenance and new build and refurbishment projects, responding to ongoing and ever evolving requirements.


Monaghans has supported several schools with capital maintenance and one off projects, recognising the key sensitivities associated with this sector. 

Student Living

Our multi-sector experience has helped us to bring innovation to student living schemes, whilst also succefully managing repurposing schemes.

We have successfully responded to differing student living needs relative to target markets, including in particular developments targeted at overseas students, and following apartment, cluster and hybrid formats.
