BAM Design has provided the concept architecture mechanical, structural, and fittings expertise. BAM Construction will carry out the building works.
The contract was secured competitively through the Education Funding Agency EFA national contractors framework.
Nishkam schools are Sikh-ethos, multi-faith schools for boys and girls aged 4-19. Building works in West London will provide places for 1400 pupils and be set over two and three storeys with four wings radiating from a central hub. The works include a four-court sports hall, two dining halls, a main assembly hall, and a central faith area with an ETFE dome. Outside will be a multi-use games area and grass pitches.
An extensive solar array on the roof will allow it to meet the sustainability requirements of the London Plan. There will be electric charging points in the car park, and the football field will be used for storm attenuation.
Mick Kelly, BAM’s construction director, said: “We know that we’ll need to build this scheme considerately and sensitively and that success hinges on the quality of our partnership with the Nishkam team. We’re a collaborative company by nature and we will work very diligently to make this an important addition to the educational needs of the area and providing a special place for young people to learn and develop.”
