Interserve selects EOS frames for schools

Interserve Construction has formed a partnership with light steel frame manufacturer EOS Facades for seven new school building projects. Interserve will use steel framing systems from EOS Facades for schools that it is building in Hertfordshire, Luton and Reading under the priority school building programme.

Interserve Construction was selected by the Education Funding Agency for the first privately financed batch of schools procured under the programme. The contract has a capital value of between £100m and £150m.

EOS Facades managing director Steve Thompson said: “This is a significant milestone in the evolution of EOS Facades, and demonstrates our capabilities as a leading supplier of steel framing systems.”

Each school will be purpose-built, with completion planned for August 2016. The schools are:

•Bishop’s Hatfield Girls’ School, Hatfield, Hertfordshire
•Goffs School, near Cheshunt, Hertfordshire
•Kings Langley School, Kings Langley, Hertfordshire
•Longdean School, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire
•Reading Girls’ School, Reading, Berkshire
•Stopsley High School, Luton, Bedfordshire
