Howard Civil Engineering have secured the civils work package for the biggest free school in the country, the Ruth Gorse Academy
This new Government-funded free school is located on derelict land between Black Bull Street and the New Dock development close to the Royal Armouries.
Once complete it will provide a facility for 1,580 pupils and 150 staff and is tipped to drive the regeneration of the south of the city centre. The Ruth Gorse Academy is actually already up and running, sharing the site of the Morley Academy, so a ready made student population are looking forward to entering through the school gates in September 2016.
Howard Civil Engineering, working for BAM Construction started on site this month carrying out the substructure and superstructure RC works togther with the foul and surface water drainage and external works package.
'We are proud to be part of a project ultimately providing education for the children of Leeds.'
