Carillion wins £167m Lambeth College job

Carillion has been named preferred bidder by Lambeth College to build a new £167m skills centre in Vauxhall, south London.

The development will include a construction skills academy, which will be operated by the college and Carillion, as well as a training hotel and 176 apartments.

It is hoped the scheme will provide learners with direct routes to “sustainable employment, apprenticeships and higher-level progression opportunities” in the construction and hotel sectors.

The project will create up to 600 jobs during the construction phase.

Carillion chief executive Richard Howson said: “This is a very exciting development that will provide state-of-the-art training facilities and prepare thousands of young people for exciting careers. We are pleased to be able to extend our apprenticeship programme to work with Lambeth College.

“Our apprenticeships not only equip people with valuable skills but enables them to work on construction projects, such as our work at Battersea Power Station and King’s Cross, during their training. The programmes are designed so apprentices can earn while they learn.”

Work is expected to start in 2016 and be completed by 2018.
