WCN Editorial Team 9 Sep 2020 EUROPE BUILDINGS

UK-based Interserve Construction has secured a £15.9m contract to build new St Anne’s Special School and Supported Housing project in Hull, UK.

Located in Hessle near Hull, the project is being constructed for East Riding of Yorkshire Council as part of the YORbuild framework.

The project will feature a single-storey school and three-storey accommodation block, which is divided by a spine wall.

The residential block will offer 44 apartments and 11 support units for parents and students aged above 18 years.

Interserve Construction divisional director John Gittins said: “This is a really important opportunity for us and the student community at St Anne’s Special School.

“As we advance through the Covid-19 crisis, it is really important we provide opportunities to rebuild the economy through local employment, training and apprenticeships.”

Upon completion, the special education needs school will provide students and staff access to a modern learning environment to support 115 children and young adults with severe learning disabilities.

Work on the project will begin this month, and the new building will be handed over by January 2022.

Gittins added: “Our appointment by East Riding of Yorkshire Council to build the new St Anne’s School further strengthens our position as one of the leading construction companies serving the UK education sector and follows the team’s recent appointments to build special needs schools in Oldham, Sheffield and Redcar.”

In July this year, Interserve won a contract from the Department for Education to design and build the new Saddleworth School in Oldham, England.

As part of the contract, the firm will construct the new school, which will offer an additional 150 new school places.

Upon completion, Saddleworth School will accommodate up to 1,500 students aged between 11 and 16 years.
