New UK schools to be built throughout 2015

  • 9 Mar 2015

The McAvoy Group has been awarded the contract for the rebuild of Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy in Slough

The schools, which are located in the South of England and across Greater London, are scheduled to be completed by the end of 2015 and the start of 2016.

Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy is one of the schools which has been targeted for a rebuild.

The new building will be larger, reaching 9,000 square metres. This is to give the school the chance to expand its education provision into Key Stages 3 and 4.

Another example is Goresbrook School, which will recieve a new primary and secondary school on the site of a soon-to-be-demolished leisure centre.

As part of this project, Goresbrook School’s existing sports hall will also be renovated and refurbished.

Other school projects include Walthamstow Academy in London and Meridian Angel Primary School, which will benefit from a Primary, Secondary and Special Education Provision.

The McAvoy Group, which uses offsite methods of construction, has secured preferred bidder status on many of EFA’s school contracts.

Because of this, the company has entered 2015 with £75 million worth of new orders: it hopes that this will help it expand on the £34 million turnover it achieved in 2014.
