Bam Construct has won the job to build a new University Technical College in Swindon.

The firm has won the contract to build UTC Swindon, understood to be worth around £10m.

The proposed site is still subject to lease negotiations, planning permission and government approval. It is anticipated that building work will begin in the autumn of 2013.

Paul Inman, pro vice-chancellor at Oxford Brookes University, said: “We are delighted that BAM Construction has been awarded this prestigious contract and look forward to working with them to help deliver what will be a unique educational enterprise for Swindon.”
