Scheme, part of Leeds BSF programme, will comprise three buildings and a sports pitch and is set to open in September 2011
Interserve has won a £30m contract to design and build a new academy for Leeds council.
The services, maintenance and building group secured the contract to develop Leeds West Academy as part of the Leeds Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme.
The new academy, which will comprise three buildings and a sports pitch, is set to open in September 2011 to 1,500 pupils aged 11–18.
The announcement comes as the Education Department is expected to review all projects in the BSF pipeline, with those before the preferred bidder stage thought to be at risk.
David Paterson, managing director of Interserve Project Services, said: “We are creating a facility with the capacity to transform the life-chances of children in west Leeds.”
Interserve provides advice, design, construction and facilities management services, has a revenue of £1.9bn and a workforce of 50,000 people worldwide.
