Surgo Construction has won three new contracts worth over £9m in the education sector.
The Newcastle-based firm has been awarded contracts by Sacred Heart in Fenham, the Royal Grammar School in Jesmond and Durham University.
At the two Tyneside schools, the firm is building new elements and refurbishing works and at Durham University the contract is refurbishment work, which the contractor will carry out over three phases.
The Royal Grammar School new build will include a 25m indoor swimming pool, changing facilities, a first-floor sports hall, weights room, performance and dance studio and a fitness room. The building will also feature a viewing terrace overlooking the outdoor sports pitches. Work is due to be complete in the spring.
At the university’s library, three levels of the Bill Bryson Library are to be refurbished.
Surgo director Jeff Alexander said he hopes the three contracts will lead to further work in the education sector. He said: “Having recently secured work in new markets which we anticipate will lead to further work we are delighted that we have secured three new contracts within the education sector which has traditionally been a core market for us. ”
