Turner replaces Kier at Burnley College


John Turner Construction has won a £5.7m contract to build a new teaching block at Burnley College.The new building will provide 2,500 sq m of teaching space across four floors, with a specialist mock ward area for the college’s health and nursing courses.The contract also includes a 950 sq m sports centre extension.The college originally picked Kier as preferred bidder in June 2020 using the Procure Partnerships construction framework. But this arrangement evidently collapsed, prompting the college to start again.
