In Oldham, Balfour Beatty will deliver new buildings and upgrade to eight of the Borough’s schools, a pupil referral unit and the construction of a new school in Chadderton. Commencing in January 2011, it will build a new Oldham Roman Catholic School at its new site. The partial rebuild and remodelling of North Chadderton School. Upgrades, expansions and new buildings for the other schools will commence between 2012 and 2014, with all construction work completed by 2015. All construction and FM will be carried out by Balfour Beatty. ICT services across all the schools will be delivered in conjunction with Northgate, an  ICT educational solutions provider. Balfour Beatty will invest equity of £3.2m into the delivery of the first sample school, Oldham Roman Catholic School, with the potential for a total of up to £6.2m equity investment in the 25-year concession as a whole.
In Derby, the BSF Programme involves the design and new build or refurbishment of 14 schools in the city with funding for three schools to be raised through a Balfour Beatty led PPP concession. All construction and FM  will be carried out by Balfour Beatty. ICT services across all the schools will be delivered in conjunction with RM, an  ICT educational solutions provider. The initial phase of the scheme will begin in November of this year with the new build of Noel-Baker Community School and Language College and St Martins School, together with the major refurbishment of Derby Moor Community Sports College. All of these schools are scheduled to open for the new academic year in September 2012. Upgrades and new builds of the other schools will commence once financial close has been achieved with all work to be completed for the new academic year in September 2014. Balfour Beatty will invest equity of £6.6m into the 25-year concession to operate and maintain the school facilities and provide related services for the three PPP schools.
