Cedars Academy Leicester

Interserve has been awarded a contract for the redevelopment of The Cedars Academy just outside of Leicester.

The £5.6m project is set to be delivered in two phases, with the firm’s East Midlands construction team based in Syston, Leicester, set to carry out the job.

Phase one of the project will see the design and development of a new secondary education teaching block and the refurbishment of the existing Stonehill building, while phase two, will involve Interserve demolishing three existing blocks and extending and upgrading another building.

The firm was handed the project under the Education and Skills Funding Agency’s £8bn school building framework.

Last year Interserve secured a place on all eight lots in the mid-value band of the ESFA framework.

Interserve has delivered more than 30 Priority School Building Programme and Free School projects.
