Bucks picks BAM for £10m UTC

30 Nov 12 BAM Construction has won a £10m contract to build the Buckinghamshire University Technical College, which is set to open its doors in September 2013.

The purpose built three-storey college building will be situated on the Aylesbury College campus and hold 600 students aged 14 to 19.

It is BAM’s fourth education project for Buckinghamshire County Council. The contractor was appointed earlier this year for Chiltern Hills Academy, Aylesbury Vale Academy and Berryfields Primary & Nursery School.

In recent years it has also completed work on Cressex Community School in Wycombe, and a redevelopment of Aylesbury College itself.

BAM’s head office is in nearby Hemel Hempstead.

Buckinghamshire UTC will focus on IT and specialist construction. The building will include advanced IT networks and bespoke workshops to give teachers and students the best facilities for their subjects.

Sustainability measures in the building include photovoltaic cells on the roof and natural ventilation of learning spaces.

Construction manager Colin Williams said:  “BAM is delighted to be delivering this modern, hi-tech facility for students in Aylesbury. We are particularly looking forward to working with local students to ensure they benefit from the construction phase as well as the finished building.”
