Laing O'Rourke/Hochtief JV wins £350m BSF deal in North-west

A Hochtief/Laing O’Rourke joint venture has claimed the £350 million Salford and Wigan Building Schools for the Future contract.

The partnership saw off competition from Catalyst Lend Lease to be named the winner this week.

The deal will see the construction giants work on five new schools and three refurbishments in Salford, as well as on all Wigan’s schools through three phases.

Work is set to start on site later this year.
