The job will form part of the council’s MK East development in preparation for 5,000 new homes being built in the area.
The MK East school project is valued at around £14.5m, and will provide 39 nursery places and 630 primary places. The 3400sq m school will have 21 classrooms and two halls and will be of steel frame construction with brickwork and cladding. It will form the first part of an all-through school with plans for a future secondary school located approximately 250m across the road.
The community health hub is valued at around £9.5m, and will provide a range of primary care, community health and other community-based services.
The 1900sq m building will accommodate a community use hall, offices, meeting rooms and children’s centre. Both projects will have drop-off and car-parking facilities.
Ian Robbins Ashe Construction’s managing director said: “We are very experienced in creating modern education and health facilities and this prestigious project will provide the focal point of a brand-new community.
“We are excited to be playing our part in delivering high quality facilities that will stand the test of time, for the families who will make the area their home for many years to come.”
Ashe has been employed to manage the complete design and build contract and has developed the scheme from feasibility over a 15-month period.
The project has been procured under the Pagabo major works framework and is being partially funded by the government’s Housing Infrastructure Fund which is also providing support for the associated highways infrastructure to serve the development.
