The contract to build the new Archbishop Blanch Secondary School is the firm’s third secondary school in two years.
Construction work at the Smithdown Road site will start imminently.
Willmott Dixon is working with architect Sheppard Robson to create the new 10,500m2, three storey school, to replace Archbishop Blanch’s current building.
Procured through Scape, the facility will include a synthetic sports pitch and opens in September 2015.
Archbishop Blanch will follow the same internal layout of the previous two schools in that classrooms are visible from several points – the whole school can be seen from one particular point – and there are no corridors. There is also solar-paneled roof to generate electricity, a theatre and recording and dance studios.
Willmott Dixon’s North West manager director Anthony Dillon said: “We have set a demanding but achievable target of having a 70% local workforce as it’s about strengthening the local economy as well as creating modern learning environments for pupils to reach their full potential.”
