Elliott, part of the Algeco Scotsman Group, world leader in modular space solutions has been awarded a contract of over £30M by the Education Funding Agency (EFA), an executive agency of the Department for Education.

Elliott will serve as the main contractor in the Priority School Building Programme Modular Primary Schools procurement scheme and will be responsible for building up to 10 new schools to accommodate around 3,000 pupils across Southern England. As part of the scheme Elliott will be responsible for building a new school on each of the existing sites using a modular construction solution.

CEO of Elliott, Lee Jon Newman, said “I am extremely proud and pleased to have been awarded this highly prestigious Government contract to provide new schools using our modern methods of off-site construction. With the Elliott Hybrid and Ibex construction solutions we can reduce the build programme considerably allowing each of the schools to take a much earlier occupation of their new building than if they were using traditional methods of construction. This contract strengthens our presence and credibility in government programmes.”

Elliott has over 50 years experience of providing permanent and temporary building solutions with a strong reputation in the education sector.
