Construction of a SEND resource base at Archbishop Sumner Primary School

22/03/2018 - Construction of a SEND resource base at Archbishop Sumner Primary School

In June 2016 Kier Construction Ltd provided a tender offer for the delivery of the proposed special educational needs and disability (SEND) Resource base at Archbishop Sumner Primary School in the sum of £923,085 which, after the addition of consultant fees, capitalisation and programme contingency, set an overall projected cost of £1,092,953. The previously confirmed overall project budget is £783,837.  Despite extensive discussions and subsequent value engineering exercises, Kier was only able to reduce its tender proposal to £905,421 and an overall projected cost of £1,072,146. In the light of this the Council pursued with the Southwark Diocese Board of Education (SDBE), it being one of their schools, other more affordable and better value for money options.
