The contract involves construction of a new £5m Bridgeview School campus in Hessle and a £2.9m refurbishment of Northcott School in Bransholme, including a new indoor sports hall. Both schools are for children with specialist needs.
Morgan Sindall area director Chris Brown said: “It is recognised that school surroundings have a profound effect on the mind-set of those who attend. The positive results of the BSF scheme are already being felt in Hull, which is reaping the benefits of having an education estate to be proud of. These special schools not only provide excellent learning facilities for their pupils, but vital services for their families, and the refurbished buildings will bolster the good work achieved at the schools.”
Morgan Sindall was appointed to the £400m Hull BSF scheme in November 2009. Led by the Hull Esteem Consortium, which comprises sister-company Morgan Sindall Investments, Robertson Capital Projects and Hull-based Sewell Group, the Hull BSF scheme is overseeing the delivery of 19 new schools by the end of 2014.
In August 2012 the Hull Esteem Consortium awarded Morgan Sindall a contract to deliver the £19.2 million St Mary’s College campus. This is due for completion in summer 2014.
The firm has also delivered three further school construction contracts, worth a total of £64.5m – Kingswood Academy, Oakfield Special School and Andrew Marvell College – which were completed in January this year.
