Willmott Dixon wins £21m contract for three schools in Milton Keynes

Willmott Dixon has bagged a £21m contract to build three schools in Milton Keynes as part of Scape Group’s £1.25bn national major works framework.

The first phase of Milton Keynes Council’s £160m schools investment programme will see the contractor build Newton Leys, Fairfield and Whitehouse primary schools, all of which will be ready for a new intake of pupils in September 2016.

The housebuilder is working with three architects: CORDE for Fairfield, ADP for Whitehouse and Synergy for Newton Leys.

The full programme aims to create seven new schools and expand a further 12 by 2018.

Willmott Dixon managing director Peter Owen said: “Demand for schools places across the country is outstripping supply and Milton Keynes is not unique in implementing a major school investment programme.

“We’ve delivered several programmes to revitalise schools across the country and will be deploying our know-how and skills in Milton Keynes.”

Willmott Dixon has previously delivered school rebuilding projects across England, including in Bedfordshire, Isle of Wight, Liverpool, Middleborough, Southampton and Warwickshire.

The company was recently appointed to deliver a £20m central hub at the University of Warwick. The new Teaching and Learning Building will be complete in July 2016.
