Mott MacDonald’s role as Technical Advisor to Solihull Council reaches key stage

Mott MacDonald’s role as Technical Advisor to Solihull Council on its Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme* has reached a key milestone as the scheme reached financial close on 1st May 2007.

This will mean that Solihull Council's plan to rebuild four of their secondary schools in the North of the Borough, an area of high deprivation, can now go in to the construction phase. This project, part of the Government's BSF programme includes the complete rebuild of four secondary schools, one a school for children with emotional, social and behavioural needs. Three of the schools will be built under Private Finance Initiative (PFI) and the other Design and Build (D&B), however to ensure consistency, all four schools are being procured under a single contract.

Mott MacDonald and Solihull Council have been working together for two years on this BSF scheme, during which time, Mott MacDonald has helped the Council with development of the technical specifications to meet the schools’ visions, stakeholder engagement, liaison with bidders, evaluation of bidders submissions for each of the schools, appointment of the Preferred Bidder and the subsequent Financial Close negotiations.

Ashley Taylor, Mott MacDonald’s project director said, “We have enjoyed working with Solihull Council on this prestigious project, which will undoubtedly be of great benefit to the local community for generations to come.”
