Bouygues has closed a £61.5 million deal to build and renovate a host of secondary schools in London.
The project, originally funded by the Building Schools for the Future scheme and in partnership with Tower Hamlets Council, represents Batch 3 of Tower Hamlets’Secondary Education Building project, bringing the number of schools undergoing regeneration in the borough to 14, with at least three more to come.
It includes new build, refurbishment of Langdon Park School, Stepney Green Mathematics and Computing College, Central Foundation School for Girls and Phoenix School.
Madani Sow, chairman of Bouygues UK and Warings, said: “We are proud to have the opportunity to continue our education work in Tower Hamlets to provide progressive, contemporary and sustainable facilities for secondary students within in the borough.
“We approach our work with the intention of bringing the additional values of local economic and social benefits. As well as supporting local issues, investment has been channelled into work based learning such as apprenticeships and a business language champions scheme, maximising development opportunities for young people in Tower Hamlets.”
Bouygues UK has completed 24 new and refurbished school buildings in five of London’s boroughs over the past six years, with a further 16 currently under construction or yet to commence.
Just last week Bouygue’s parent company said its order book had also been boosted by the acquisition of Leadbitter.
