Kier has been appointed by the Department for Education (DfE) to deliver the £15.6m Harris Clapham Sixth Form Academy for the Harris Federation.
Works include the demolition of an existing 1930s former army reserve centre building and the construction of a new build part three and four-storey building. The 5,250m² building will accommodate 600 pupils and will have a range of state-of-the-art facilities, including a drama studio, science labs, ICT classrooms, an art studio and a gym/fitness suite.
Cliff Thomas, managing director at Kier Regional Building London and South East, said: “This project will provide dedicated learning opportunities for students in the area for years to come. We have a wealth of experience in delivering first-class educational facilities in London and this appointment further strengthens our relationship with the Harris Federation, after previously delivering the Harris Girls Academy Bromley and Harris Academy Riverside. We look forward to seeing this project come to fruition and positively impact the community for years to come.”
This appointment further strengthens Kier’s position as a leading provider of educational facilities, where it has delivered over £5bn of projects in the past 10 years. Currently, it is on site at a number of projects across the UK including Lordswood Boys school in Harbourne, Birmingham and the Ponteland school and leisure development in Northumberland.
