Balfour Beatty Education have been awarded the £300m, 18 school contract for the renewal of LB Ealing’s secondary schools.
They beat off QED Education to win the deal, which will involve construction on two of the schools beginning as early as this autumn.
The BSF programme will see 17 high schools and special schools rebuilt, refurbished and modernised with 15 receiving significant investment in new information communications technology (ICT). A completely new high school will built in north Greenford.
Balfour Beatty Education has already developed detailed plans for the first two schools to benefit from the programme. The initial phase of construction will see Dormers Wells High School, Southall, completely rebuilt and The Cardinal Wiseman School, Greenford, partially rebuilt and remodelled. Both will receive major investment in their ICT.
Construction on both schools is scheduled to start in October. Upgrades at the other schools will commence between 2011-2013. All work is expected to be complete by 2014.
