Morgan Sindall wins £29m Milton Keynes school

Pre-Construction, Construction & Build

Morgan Sindall Construction’s Northern Home Counties office has been selected to deliver a new £29m ‘all-through’ school in Wavendon, Milton Keynes.

David Rowsell, Northern Home Counties area director at Morgan Sindall Construction, is looking to win more work in Milton Keynes.

Milton Keynes Council has confirmed the company as preferred bidder to deliver a new 1,530 place school under a pre-construction services agreement, via the Pagabo national framework for major construction works.

The school, located at Glebe Farm, will be open to pupils aged five to 16 and will also include a nursery with the equivalent of 39 full time places.

Development of the school will be located on a 95,000 square metre site – an area larger than 13 football pitches – off Burney Drive in Glebe Farm, where hundreds of new houses have been built.

The development is being funded from a combination of Basic Need Government funding, Section 106 grant funding and Milton Keynes Council borrowing.

David Rowsell, Northern Home Counties area director at Morgan Sindall Construction, said: “Glebe Farm’s new school will be transformational for the community, providing hundreds of children with a school building that they can call home throughout their journey in full-time education.

“Morgan Sindall Construction is incredibly proud to have been appointed as preferred bidder for this project by Milton Keynes Council and we’re looking forward to working with our client closely with our project partners as the first phase of delivery gets underway.

“As a company, we are keen to continue to further develop our existing relationship with Milton Keynes having successfully collaborated with them in recent years.

“We have a wealth of experience in delivering major education projects and we’re thrilled to be able to offer our specialist expertise to support the council’s vision for the future of Glebe Farm.”
