Extension to the Pre-Construction Services Agreement for Woodlands Meed College New Build Project

Woodlands Meed is a Special School and College for 2-19-year old pupils located in Burgess Hill.


Due to suitability and condition issues of the existing accommodation at the College site, in May 2020 Cabinet agreed that funding was allocated to replace the College building on its existing site (Decision reference CAB03 (20/21) refers).  As part of the decision authority was delegated to the Director of Property and Assets that, subject to receipt of planning permission and statutory consents, a construction contract was entered into for rebuilding the College. 


A Pre-Construction Services Agreement was executed in February 2021 to appoint the contractor at Stage 4 of the project to ensure buildability and reduce risk; due to design changes this agreement requires extending.  The Director of Property and Assets will be asked to approve the extension to the pre-construction services agreement.
