Algeco lands £28m modular Northampton school

Work will start in January on the Northampton School for Boys Multi-Academy Trust awarded by the Department for Education (DfE) via the MMC1 Lot 1 modular framework.

Algeco will act as principal design and build contractor working with Watson Batty Architect.

A total of 210 modules will be supplied by Algeco plus a hybrid structure for the halls, to create the 1200 place new secondary school.

The first modules, which will be manufactured by Algeco in its Carnaby facility in East Yorkshire, will be delivered to site in August 2023.

Handover of the completed school is scheduled to take place in 2024.

James Withey, Managing Director at Algeco Offsite Solutions, said: “As a business we have a long track record of delivering large publicly funded projects like this.

“Northampton school is shaping up to be a development that the industry should take note of. That’s because ourtechnology has the potential to help the Department for Education and other publicly and privately funded organisations to improve both delivery and outcomes on their build programmes across the UK.”

Algeco UK Ltd, formerly best known as Elliott in the UK, operates 23 site locations throughout the country servicing its portable, modular building and offsite construction hire and sales activities.
