Construction firm signs contract for £152m Building Schools for the Future scheme in London

Bouygues has signed a contract for the £152m Building Schools for the Future scheme in Westminster.

Construction work worth £66m is already underway in three schools: St Marylebone CE School, Pimlico School and Westminster City School.

From the summer term, the programme will move forward with the development of the remaining six schools at an investment cost of approximately £80m.

In addition, an all new 24-place Pupil Referral Unit will be built and a new unit for nursery and reception aged children will be provided for St Vincent’s RC Primary School.

Lionel Christolomme, managing director of Bouygues UK, said: “This project reinforces our commitment to the government's Building Schools for the Future initiative, this being our second scheme on the programme.”

As well as the building works, £11m will be invested in information and communication technology across all nine schools.
