GB Building Solutions has been awarded a £15 million contract to build a new school in Manchester under the  City Council's Framework One agreement, of which GB is a part.

The new project will replace redundant buildings at Abraham Moss High School. The existing CLASP buildings are no longer fit for purpose and will be replaced with a new purpose-built building, which will include classrooms and accommodation for boarding pupils.

This is the second school contract awarded to GB Building Solutions by Manchester City Council in as many weeks. The other was the £14m Whalley Range High School project.

The school is part of the national Building Schools for the Future (BSF) scheme, which aims to rebuild or refurbish every secondary school in England.

In Manchester there is a combined BSF and Academies programme with a £500 million capital investment to rebuild or refurbish 33 secondary schools, seven of which will be specialist academies.
