Bouygues UK has landed a £30 million contract to build the tenth and final school in Westminster City Council’s Building Schools for the Future programme.
Quintin Kynaston Community Foundation School will be one of three school that forms the £41m Marlborough Hill Campus redevelopment in St John’s Wood along with George Eliot Primary School and Alternative Provision Centre which were a combined £11m contract.
Once construction of GE and APC is concluded work will commence on the new QK building with a provisional start date of December 2012.
Upon completion and migration of the school to their new building, the old building will be demolished and the remaining area will be remodelled to provide external sports facilities and landscaped social spaces to be shared across all three schools on the campus.
Bouygues announced in September it had reached financial close on a £61.5m deal to build and renovate a host of secondary schools in partnership with Tower Hamlets council in London.
Bouygues UK’s Jonathon Clarke said: “Quintin Kynaston signifies the final phase of this complex campus project which has required innovative design solutions throughout every aspect of the programme.
“We are really proud to have worked on such a challenging educational project which will significantly enhance the learning experience for teachers and pupils alike.”
The construction phase will take 34 months in total including demolition and landscaping, with completion scheduled for October 2015.
