NetZero Education

Educational excellence with NetZero Buildings

Our proprietary and award-winning school building design is now the UK’s leading energy efficient educational building programme. In fact, we've designed and delivered over 100 new school buildings.

From our manufacturing facility in Newmarket, we design and off-site manufacture buildings. These multi-award-winning designs run at a fraction of the cost of alternative solutions; generating clean energy and revenue through integrated renewable energy sources.

Choose from several standard designs for classrooms, theatres, dining rooms, sports facilities, Specialist Education Needs and other multi-functional education spaces. All of which you can lease or buy. Remarkably, we can assemble a standard classroom block on your school site in just a few days.

Long-term funding

We can provide funding for your project through a range of ESFA compliant solutions.

How it works

  • ESFA requirements: our specialists provide hands-on support to ensure compliance
  • No capital outlay: we will fully fund the design, build and installation. Part funding can also be provided.
  • Low rental payments: we can spread the costs over a 20 year period
  • Fixed rent for 20 years: rent payments reduce in real terms
  • Rent offset by savings: more than 50% of rent is covered by energy and running cost benefits
  • Value for money: independently verified by leading consultancies
Capital funding is now no longer a barrier. We can help school leaders access a variety of different funding sources including long-term funding packages. This is a real breakthrough for our clients.
