A company based in Rugby has won four major school renovation projects valued at £7.8million in Milton Keynes since July 2011.

Construction and infrastructure giant, Morgan Sindall, is reaping the benefits of winning a place on the Milton Keynes Framework, a list of pre-approved contractors.

Morgan Sindall’s most recent project is White Spire Primary, a £1.7 million contract to expand White Spire School, a Special Educational Needs school in Bletchley. That contract started in July. Before then, a £1.8 million contract to extend Brooklands Primary School in Leadenhall was started in June. A £1.8 million contract to build the new Falconhurst Primary School in Eaglestone, started in April and a £2.5 million contract to extend St Paul’s Catholic Primary School in Leadenhall started in March.

Charlie Norris, construction director for Morgan Sindall, said: “We’re delighted to be a construction partner under the framework. Milton Keynes Council initially selected us as one of their framework contractors in 2007 and our re-appointment to the new framework last year reaffirms our ability to consistently deliver high quality schemes while working closely with local communities.

“The Milton Keynes Framework has driven improvements in performance, efficiency and value for money in procurement and we have enjoyed working closely with Milton Keynes Council to deliver a number of education projects in the region. Our team has achieved exceptional results against key performance indicators as well as customer satisfaction and we’re looking forward to the challenge of continuing to perform well over the next four years.”

Framework contracts provide a means of procuring and delivering construction projects across Milton Keynes.

Morgan Sindall won a place on the four-year framework in July last year and has the opportunity to bid for projects valued at £2.5 million and over, as well as those worth between £350,000 and £2.5 million The framework appointment has a three-year term, with a possible one year further extension.
