Academy Building

F3GROUP was appointed as Project Manager on the New Line Academy project in Kent.

We were initially involved in establishing the New Line Academy building concept, form, and accommodation schedule to meet the educational model.

This included managing the team to obtain outline planning permission for change of use of the old site and managing the project to merge the two schools in the existing and temporary accommodation.

Inside New Line Academy

Our principal duties were developing the outline and final business cases, selecting panel members, developing Local Authority requirements, design, affordability reviews, liaison with PFS, management of financial close, preparation of contract schedules, ICT integration and contract administration.

The £125m rebuilding programme included utilising a design/build contractor from PFS’s Academies framework.

F3GROUP acted as Local Authority Project Manager during the procurement stage, and the site now includes three further Academies.
