Morgan Sindall Construction has begun work on a new £8 million primary school near Edwalton, Nottingham.
The company has been appointed to construct the new school by Arc Partnership on behalf of Nottinghamshire County Council.
The Rosecliffe Spencer Academy will provide 315 places for local children and a 26-place nursery. It is expected to open in September 2020. The 22,066 sq ft main school building, which will be split into two storeys, will include nine general purpose classrooms, offices, a hall, a library and a kitchen.
The contract was procured through the four-year Scape Regional Construction Framework (RCF), through which £1.1 billion of work is expected to be tenured.
Rob Cant, framework director at Morgan Sindall Construction, said: “We are incredibly pleased to have begun work with Arc Partnership on the new primary school, delivering a modern learning environment to Edwalton that is fit for 21st century education.
“We are also proud to be celebrating nearly two years on Scape’s Regional Construction Framework, which has proved many times over that cost-efficient procurement and early contractor engagement can produce great results.
“Temporary modular units are a great interim solution to allow the school to start teaching on the site before the main building is completed, allowing students to continue their education without disruption.”
