DfE awards Interserve with second contract in Manchester


Interserve has been selected by the Department for Education (DfE) to design and build Halcyon Way, a special education needs school for children in Oldham, Greater Manchester

This is the second special education needs school Interserve Construction has been selected to build in Manchester after winning the £8m contract to deliver Prospect House.

In the past 10 months, Interserve Construction has been awarded more than 15 school build projects worth more than £106m.

Interserve will create a facility for pupils with a range of specialist needs at Halcyon Way, which will provide places for 152 pupils, aged four to eleven, of which 12 will be early-years places.

The 3,231 sq metre new build will be delivered using latest mixed reality technology, and will include a two-storey building, external play areas and car parking facilities. The facilities will include a range of therapy and sensory spaces.

Interserve will commence planning and design work over the next few months.

Interserve’s partnership with the DfE aligns with its construction strategy to target attractive, risk-adjusted returns in the sectors where it has a market-leading customer proposition.

Phil Shaw, divisional director at Interserve Construction, said: “Across the education sector, our experience ranges from the delivery of primary and secondary schools through to university buildings.

“We have completed projects throughout the UK from the refurbishment and extension of existing facilities to the construction of brand new campuses.

“Working in partnership with the DfE, Interserve creates and cares for school and community facilities throughout the UK. Our primary aim at Halcyon Way is to provide a learning environment which inspires pupils and allow teaching staff to focus fully on the delivery of education.”
