Joint Venture secures place on £95 million Schools’ Framework for the Education and Skills Funding Agency

A new joint venture between property services group Styles&Wood and modular construction specialist Extraspace Solutions has secured a place on a £95 million framework. The joint venture company, Spatial Initiative, has been appointed as the primary contractor on Lot 1 of the Education and Skills Funding Agency ESFA Modular Primary Block Framework.

The four-year programme, which will use modular construction to replace and remodel buildings at primary schools across the country, commenced in July 2017 with a pilot scheme of 16 schools. Spatial Initiative has secured the first four projects which will be progressively delivered during 2018.

The JV will manufacture and install full block replacements and complete schools, using a design-led integrated solution. This innovative approach has been enhanced through expert design influence provided under strategic partnerships with AHR Architects and S I Sealy Building Services Engineering Consultancy.

The rebuild is part of the Government’s £4.4 billion Priority School Building Programme which is rebuilding or refurbishing those school buildings in the very worst condition across the country. The first four schools, located across the South East, London and Midlands, will be delivered between April and December 2018.

Styles&Wood provides a full range of professional and contracting services to some of the UK’s premier brands and leading blue chip organisations. Extraspace Solutions is a leading provider of modular buildings with clients across a range of sectors in the UK and Ireland.
