KCC is delivering the construction of the new Barton Court Free School on the former Chaucer School site in Canterbury. The DfE has appointed KCC to act as the Local Delivery Agent (Responsible Body), with Gen2 acting as KCC’s Agent. As the Responsible Body, KCC will be the contracting authority for the purpose of delivering the scheme. The new school will be located on part of the former Chaucer School site, with the remainder allocated to the land disposal programme.
A paper was presented to June 2019 ICB outlining the outcome of the procurement process to secure a building contractor and contracts are ready to be finalised.
As Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Finance, Corporate and Traded Services, I endorse the decision to award an initial building contract to Kier Construction Limited for the Phase 2 enabling works at the Barton Court Free School site and delegate authority to the Director of Infrastructure, in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Finance, Corporate and Traded Services, to finalise the contractual terms and enter into any necessary documentation.
