Final contracts between Ealing Council and Balfour Beatty have been signed for the borough’s reduced Building Schools for the Future (BSF) project.
Construction work on the complete rebuilding of Dormers Wells High School, Southall, and the major refurbishment and partial rebuild of The Cardinal Wiseman School, Greenford, is expected to start in January.
The scope of the original BSF programme included the expansion, rebuild and refurbishment of 17 high and special schools in the borough and the building of a new high school in Greenford. A major programme of investment in schools’ information and communication technology (ICT) was also planned.
However, the national BSF programme was cancelled in the summer and Ealing learned in August that only the Dormers Wells High School and The Cardinal Wiseman School projects could continue.
