The appointment will see Seddon deliver a £5m school extension for Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council in Heaton Chapel after winning a mini-competition run through the framework.

Seddon will build a new junior block at St Thomas’ CE Primary and establish a seeded sports pitch and running track as part of the contract. 

The contract was released through the medium value framework for work worth between £2m and £9m for public bodies and councils in Cumbria, Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Merseyside.  NWCH expects to award anywhere between £250m and £1bn through the framework over the next three years with an option to extend for a further year.

Seddon construction manager Andre Witter said: “We hope that this is the first of many contracts we secure through the framework.”

Meanwhile Seddon has also been appointed by Staffordshire County Council to convert a disused adult education centre into a new £2.5m primary school in Lichfield. The former Cherry Orchard adult training centre, which has been empty for three years, will become the Five Spires Academy, with a single-storey extension to the 1970s building.

This is Seddon’s sixth project under Staffordshire County Council’s construction framework.
