Interserve has won three contracts worth £42M to improve facilities at schools in Yorkshire and the Midlands.
The company will tackle a £23M improvement programme for Farnley Park High School in Leeds, £11M worth of extensions in schools in the Nottinghamshire Construction Framework and an £8M contract to increase the capacity of four schools under the jurisdiction of Coventry City Council.
The Farnley Park contract will be undertaken as part of the Leeds Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme, which was implemented in 2007. Work has already begun and is expected to be completed by July 2012.
Work will be carried out to build a new school entrance and reception area, main school hall, learning resource centre, sports hall and external sports facilities, and hydrotherapy pool.
Interserve chief executive Adrian Ringrose said: “It is very rewarding to be responsible for delivering projects such as these that will benefit not just the pupils themselves but also many members of the local community.”
