BAM Construct has won five contracts for work on academy school projects in England.
The contractor said that it has been selected as preferred contractor for a £19 million construction contract at Winterbourne International Academy, part of The Ridings’ Federation of Academies, in Bristol, and has also won the £10.25m contract to regenerate Chiltern Hills Academy in Buckinghamshire.
It has also scooped the £6.5m design and build contract for a major refurbishment and partial new build at Bristol Free School, along with the contract to deliver Berryfields Primary and Nursery School on the same site as the existing Aylesbury Vale Academy.
And, as revealed by Construction News in March, BAM Construct also announced that it has been awarded a contract to deliver refurbishment and new build work at Marine Academy Plymouth.
The Winterbourne scheme will build a three-storey, 11,500 sq m facility in the courtyard of the centre of the academy’s existing buildings.
BAM Construct will also extend an existing technology block before decanting the students and demolishing many of the current buildings.
At Chiltern Hills Academy, based in Chesham, the contractor will build a new wing and carry out refurbishment work on its existing estate.
In Bristol, work will include refurbishing and refitting a 5,000 sq m block for classrooms, science laboratories and technology rooms as well as building a sports hall, dance and drama studio as well as an all-weather games area.
The new Berryfields school will have capacity for 420 pupils aged four to 11, along with 52 pre-school children.
The Plymouth scheme will see BAM Construct remodelling the school’s science wing and ICT suite, building a new three storey block, along with demolition of residual buildings.
