The Education Building and Development Officers Group (EBDOG) has launched a new website with support from building consultancy Trident and mobile surveying and asset management software firm Kykloud.

The website has been designed to better communicate with EBDOG members – a national group of
local authority officers and property professionals who are responsible for the effective asset
management of the school estate and other local authority premises.

Kykloud was delighted to support EBDOG as the organisation and its members play a really important
role in shaping the UK’s education estate an area where we are extremely active; our mobile surveying
and asset management software is being used to better manage in excess of 70 million sq ft of
infrastructure around the globe, including a large proportion of the UK’s educational estates.

The mobile software enables surveyors and asset and facilities managers to have a detailed
understanding of the condition of their assets and provides data driven accurate forecasts on future
spend liability – meeting the exact needs of those tasked with managing education estates and securing
future funding.

EBDOG and its members are increasingly leading national debate and seeking to influence policy on
school organisation, pupil place planning and capital investment in school infrastructure and provides
an opportunity for building and development officers, normally working within the confines of their
own Local Authority to discuss the impact of proposed changes in the sector, share experience and
knowledge and discuss important issues in a different forum and the industry.

Peter Colenutt chair of EBDOG commented: “I am absolutely delighted with the transformational
change of the website, it now provides a really strong platform to communicate with and listen to our
members. This is something that would not have been possible without the support of Trident and
Kykloud. I would like to say a huge thank you to both companies and know Local Authorities and the
industry from across the country will benefit from the new site.
