Leicester colleges boost for Miller partnership

25 April 2012

Miller and partners reach financial close on two more new colleges in the Leicester BSF Programme.

LMEC, a partnership between Miller Construction, Leicester City Council, Semperian, G4S and BSFi, will fund and manage the development of the new facilities at City of Leicester College and Crown Hills Community College. Upon completion, LMEC will assume responsibility for the management and maintenance of both schools, on behalf of Leicester City Council over a 25 year period.
Miller Construction has been appointed as main contractor for the design and build of both schools, while G4S will provide Facilities Management services.
Chris Webster, Chief Executive, Miller Construction, said: “It has been a challenge to get these projects over the line in what is currently a very difficult economic environment. It is testament to the strength of the partnership between Leicester City Council and LMEC that we have been able to achieve this. I am delighted we have reached Financial Close on both of these projects and can now focus on further strengthening our partnership with Leicester City Council and ensure the successful delivery of these two schools.”
City of Leicester College and Crown Hills Community College are the sixth and seventh schools to be delivered by LMEC through the Leicester BSF programme, bringing the total construction value of contracts signed to over £125 million.
LMEC has also commenced design and development work in conjunction with Miller Construction and Leicester City Council on the remaining 16 schools in the Leicester BSF programme. With a combined value of over £120 million these projects are expected to reach contract closure in late 2012 and early 2013.
