Hackney appoints mpb education

04 October 2007

The London Borough of Hackney has selected a consortium led by mpb education to deliver its ambitious £167m Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme.

mpb education is a 50:50 joint venture between Mouchel Parkman and Babcock Infrastructure Services.
As the private sector partner in the council’s Local Education Partnership (LEP), mpb education will deliver design, build and operational services using its well-developed supply chain over the next 10 years. There is also opportunity for the JV partners to provide services such as design and FM.

The BSF programme has been developed by Hackney Council in partnership with The Learning Trust. It will involve rebuilding or refurbishing six secondary schools and four special schools in the borough by 2015. Each school will have state of the art IT equipment and a comprehensive facilities management process.
The council is likely to use a mixture of PFI and traditional contracts to deliver the programme.

The LEP plans to embark on Phase 1 of the BSF programme in spring 2008 starting at Clapton Girls’ Technology College, Hackney Free and Parochial CE School and Stoke Newington School for Media Arts and Science.

James Measures, Managing Director of Government Services at Mouchel Parkman, is delighted with the appointment: "This is a wonderful opportunity to make a difference to the educational outcomes for children in Hackney. We have an excellent supply chain which will help Hackney Council to meet its BSF aspirations and make a real impact on the local community."

Mike Fellowes, Managing Director of Babcock Infrastructure Services, commented: "The team has worked very hard to achieve this outcome and I am delighted that our first venture into this important market area has resulted in such early success. I very much look forward to working with Hackney on this important project and assisting them in delivering their educational goals. "
