Pimlico Academy, Westminster
Completion Date 2011
Contract Value £20m
Client Westminster City Council
The new Pimlico Academy replaces the existing Pimlico School on the same site to address Westminster City Council's concerns about the existing 1960s building being able to accommodate future requirements of both the school and local community. Constructed by Bouygues, and with a capacity of 1262, the new school caters for 1050 pupils, a 200-place sixth form and a 12-place specialist Speech Language and Communications needs unit, as well as providing a new home for Pimlico Library and a new local centre for Westminster's Adult Education Service.
