Carillion secures £100m schools contract

InterContinental Hotels & Resorts has opened a new hotel, InterContinental Sofia, in Bulgaria.

UK-based construction services company Carillion has been selected as the preferred bidder to work on UK academy school contracts worth more than £100m.

The appointments have been made through the Partnerships for Schools Contractors Framework. The latest framework contract comes after Carillion completed the £14m ARK Bollingbroke Academy in Wandsworth, London. Carillion Group CEO Richard Howson said that contract builds on the company’s strong track record in the education sector, where it has recently delivered, or is in the process of delivering, around 150 new and refurbished schools and academies.

Stockton-on-Tees Council has chosen Carillion as the preferred bidder for the combined North Shore Health Academy and Myplace youth facility. In addition, Carillion will also provide improvements for Thornaby Academy and Freebrough Academy, which have been sponsored by Teesside University. Work on Thornaby and Freebrough is expected to start at the end of February 2012 and is scheduled for completion in April 2013.

The London Borough of Lambeth in association with education sponsor E-ACT has selected Carillion as the preferred bidder to deliver a new co-located academy and primary school on the site of Fenstanton Primary School, together with new sports and multi-use games areas and a community youth facility. Work should start in March 2012 and completed in August 2013.

The London Academies Education Trust (LAET) has chosen Carillion as the preferred bidder for the new Aylward Academy in Edmonton, which includes the refurbishment of the existing school buildings and a new extension. Carillion will also undertake improvements and new build extensions to four academies: the Nightingale Academy in Enfield for LAET, Richmond Park Academy and Greensward Academy in Essex for Academies Enterprise Trust, and the Colchester Academy for Colchester Institute.

Work on these projects is expected to start in April 2012 and is scheduled for completion in April 2014.
