Balfour lands £14.3m of BSF contracts

Balfour Beatty - the number one firm in this year’s CN100 - has landed two Building Schools for the Future contracts worth £14.3 million.

Both contracts are in Stevenage, Hertfordshire.

Balfour companies Balfour Beatty Engineering Services (BBES) and Mansell are in charge of the £5.6m Nobel sample scheme, to create a four-storey school that can hold 1,600 pupils.  It involves the supply and installation of mechanical and electrical services for the remodeling and extension of the existing secondary school, along with the complete new building services installation.

BBES and Balfour Beatty Construction are doing the £8.7m Marriotts Lonsdale scheme, which includes the supply and installation of mechanical and electrical services for a new co-located secondary school and all-age special educational needs school with overnight accommodation, along with a complete new building services installation.

Marriotts School is a specialist sports and science facility serving 1,600 students, with facilities also used by the community. Lonsdale School is an all-age school for pupils with physical and neurological impairments (PNI).

Education secretary Michael Gove said in July that the government will set up a new privately financed school building programme, worth up to £2 billion, to improve as many as 300 schools in poor condition across the country. The funds will be open to schools previously promised funding under the scrapped BSF scheme.
