Winning contractors in a £5 billion schools refurbishment framework contract have been revealed. The Education Funding Agency which manages school and college estates in England has picked 16 companies who can bid for work in six regions over the next four years.


Among the main winners are Kier and BAM Construction, who have both won a place on all six regional lots, and Bowmer & Kirkland which has a place on five of the regional lots.

Other companies to have made the framework are Interserve, ISG, Shepherd, Willmott Dixon, Tomlinson, Bouygues, Galliford Try, Rydon, Skanska, Seddon, Thomas Vale, Eric Wright and Conlon Construction.

It is understood that the work will involve refurbishment and remodelling of school premises as well as some smaller new build work.

London and the South East is tipped to see most construction activity, worth as much as £1.5 billion. Frameworks in the West Midlands and the North West are each worth up to £875M, with the Eastern region lot valued at £750M, the North East £500M and the South West £500M.

Typical projects will be valued at between £3 million and £7 million and the framework will cover schemes as much as £10 million. The framework will begin in July 2014.

A spokesman for one of the main firms on the framework said that they were pleased to have secured their place, but that it does not guarantee any construction work coming their way.
