LONDON: Carillion has the contract to build the £14m ARK Bollingbroke Academy in Wandsworth, London, through the Partnerships for Schools Contractors Framework. Work is expected to start in March, with completion scheduled for August 2013.

Carillion has won Academy Schools work worth more than £100m to date. The firm will also provide improvements for two existing academies sponsored by Teesside University at Thornaby Academy and Freebrough Academy.
