Race starts for £120m Yorkshire PF2 schools

The Education Funding Agency has started the search for a contractor to deliver the Yorkshire batch of privately financed priority schools worth up to £120m.

It is the fourth of five batches of privately financed schools to come to market as part of the Priority School Building Programme.

The batch includes seven schools in Bradford, Harrogate and Kirklees and is worth between £80m and £120m.

A contractor is wanted to design, build, finance and maintain the schools under the government’s private finance 2 model, with a financial aggregator to raise 90 per cent of the funding requirement.

Pre-qualification documents can be obtained by emailing: yorks-pf.psbp@education.gsi.gov.uk.

The time limit for the receipt of pre-qualification questionnaires is 17 March 2014.

To date, Morgan Sindall, Wates and a joint venture between Interserve and property developer Kajima have been shortlisted for the Hertfordshire, Luton and Reading batch of seven schools.

Laing O’Rourke, Miller Construction and Sir Robert McAlpine have been chosen to compete for the £120m batch of 12 schools in the North-east.

Meanwhile Laing O’Rourke, Morgan Sindall and Vinci have been selected to bid for the batch of 12 schools in the North-west.
