Bam Construct and Bouygues are going head-to-head for the £250 million Camden Building Schools for the Future contract.
The north London council today announced that Bam PPP UK and Bouygues PEC were being considered to become its Local Education Partnership for the programme, as predicted by Construction News last month.
The contract will see three schools built and eight refurbished, over three phases of work, as part of the Government’s £55 billion secondary school renewal programme.
Councillor Andrew Mennear, executive member for schools, said: “Both the bidders are very experienced companies, which certainly bodes well for our BSF programme.
“We will now enter detailed discussions with both bidders to determine which would be best placed to help us deliver these ambitious plans, which will transform learning in Camden for all our young people.”
