The firm will deliver Hackney University Technical College under a £2.4m deal confirmed today.
BAM will refurbish, fit out and extend an existing building as well as creating additional space within the Hackney Community College campus.
The contract is the first of 24 UTC projects announced in the Budget earlier this year.
The colleges offer 14-19 year olds a specialist course of study designed in partnership with employers, skills sector agencies and universities.
Hackney, which will specialise in digital and health technologies, is part of a batch of three schemes procured through Partnerships for Schools’ academies framework.
BAM will start talks with two othe UTCs in the batch –Greenwich and Southwark – early in the New Year.
Work in Hackney will start in February and will complete in time for UTC’s opening in September 2012.
BAM frameworks director Keith Rayner said: “We are delighted to have secured the first UTC contract through the academies framework.
“This shows we have understood the unique aims of Hackney UTC and are able to support the college’s development of these aims.
“We look forward to delivering an outstanding educational facility for the area.”
