BAM to create outstanding facilities at Taunton Academy
Taunton Academy now has planning agreed and has signed contracts for the £11 million rebuild on the school's North Site. BAM Construction has been appointed to deliver the education development.
The Academy partnership features Futures for Somerset, BAM and RM Education. Construction will commence immediately, with handover of the main new buildings scheduled for September 2013.
The mix of new build and refurbishment will offer a state-of-the-art science wing and outstanding design, technology and music facilities, alongside a range of large flexible classrooms and 'heart spaces' within each college for both academic and social use.
Apart from two new schools in Bridgwater, BAM is building the new Jubilee Building at Musgrove Hospital which broke ground in March.
There is £1 million worth of ICT investment. With a wireless infrastructure for ICT the building will be both flexible and offer new opportunities for learning and teaching. The large open learning areas, individual i-learning for research and independent study, alongside an exciting curriculum that students can access and progress through as part of a personalised learning programme, will promote success for all.
Academy lead sponsor, the Church of England Diocese of Bath & Wells and co-sponsor Somerset County Council, are also excited to see the building project come to fruition.
