Manchester’s newest school, Chorlton High School South, has appointed the region’s best known builders to create its new teaching facilities.
BAM Construction, one of the largest contractors in Europe and one of the longest established in the UK, has been appointed following a competitive tender process led by the Department for Education, under its capital framework for schools in England.
BAM’s recent track record in Manchester’s education story is writ large: within the past three years it has delivered three new schools at Cheadle Hulme, Didsbury and (under construction now) Laurus Ryecroft.
It is now appointed to develop the current plot on Mauldeth Road West which is partly occupied by Greater Manchester Police dog unit and horse paddocks. Design has been led by Pozzoni Architects which also has a long track record in the education sector.
