Under a £10.25m contract for Bucks County Council and the Oxford Diocese, BAM will refurbish Chiltern Hills Academy in Chesham and build a new wing for the school. The scheme will create an integrated building with a large atrium as well as new kitchen and dining facilities and a new sports hall.
Work on site starts in August 2012 and completion is scheduled for the end of 2013.
BAM Construct UK has also been awarded a £6m contract to build a new primary and nursery school in Buckinghamshire. This will be on the site of the yet-to-be-built Aylesbury Vale Academy, for which BAM already has a £22m contract, with work starting next month.
Funding for the Berryfields Primary and Nursery School has come through a Section 106 agreement with the developers of the Berryfields estate.
BAM has previous form with the county council, having built Cressex Community School, and it is now competing for the Buckinghamshire University Technical College.
