Doncaster Council today confirmed Wates will undertake the rebuild of Outwood Academy Adwick.
The award comes just six months after the Government announced three Doncaster academies would receive funding for vital improvement works in the wake of BSF being cancelled.
Wates was appointed by the council earlier this year to rebuild Campsmount Technology College after successfully piloting a simplified procurement process as part of the Review of Education Capital.
The Outwood deal has been done via a Future Schools Agreement used to speed up the procurement of the new academies.
Wates is also set to build the £10m De Warenne Academy once a full planning application is submitted.
Doncaster’s academies were given priority status following the success of the Campsmount scheme.
Mayor of Doncaster, Peter Davies, said: “To get to this stage in the procurement process so quickly is testament to the dedicated work of the council’s school rebuilding team.
“For Doncaster to once again be leading the way for others to follow shows just what we can deliver and the confidence the Government has in the council and town. This also demonstrates my commitment to Academies in Doncaster.
David Price, Business Unit Director for Wates Construction in Yorkshire, said: “Being named Preferred Contractor for Outwood Academy in Adwick is a significant achievement for Wates and our appointment to the project reflects our commitment to the efficient delivery of school rebuilding works as referred to in the James Review of Education Capital.
“The rebuild of Campsmount Technology College is a continuing success and we are very proud to be contributing further to the significant improvements being made to education facilities in Doncaster.”
