- as first batch, by Wilkinson Eyre, takes major step forward

  • Comment
The first programme of schools under the government's contentious Building Schools for the Future programme has secured financial close.

The batch, which is being designed by Wilkinson Eyre, will see the reconstruction of four schools in the Bristol area.

These four are just the first tranche of work in the deal, which will see the Skanska-led consortium working on all medium and large school projects in the area over the next decade.

The quartet - Brislington Enterprise College, Hatcliffe Engineering Community College, Speedwell Technology College and Whitefield Fishponds Community School - are already on site.

These four will be developed as part of a massive PFI scheme, which will see the contractor invest £120m in the design and build of the new schools.

All other Building Schools for the Future work will be delivered through the Local Education Partnership - a collaboration between Skanska and the Local Education Authority.
