DURATION: 3 years


PiLON were proud to be awarded the Planned Building Works contract with The University of Surrey in 2019. The exceptionally large, multi-site campus demanded a multitude of contractors and specialist sub-contractors, who we successfully worked alongside to ensure budget, quality, and timeframe targets were met.

Our contribution on this project was vast and varied, including but not limited to: Roofing repairs, skylight installations, cladding, landscaping, tarmacking, compartmentalisation with glass partitions, painting and decorating, flooring, re-proofing works, water treatment, damp proofing works, electrical and data works, and reconfiguring internal walls to change the purpose of the building. During the 2020 summer holidays, we surveyed and undertook repairs to c. 10,000 student accommodation rooms.

This was an exciting project for PiLON as our first in the education sector. We worked hard to ensure the quality of our customer service from management to operatives matched the high standard of works produced and are thrilled to have developed an extremely positive, professional relationship with the University. We look forward to working with The University of Surrey, along with our educational institutions in the future.

“PiLON has supplied excellent service to date, all their responses to University’s emergencies have been prompt and all works completed to the highest standard. PiLON’s management team is very knowledgeable and always fast to respond and solve any out of ordinary requests that the University has.”
