Embracing the best practice of modern office design and layout, to include partitions and break-out spaces, the contractor will be obliged to complete the refurbishment works to a ‘Very Good’ BREEAM rating.

The contractor will also be mandated to deliver the very best value for money for the public purse.

Under the plans as they are presently understood, around 250,000 square foot of modern  office flooring  office flooring space will be presented to the DfE after the refurbishment.

The contract, which is expected to realise a value of £40m, is part of the Cabinet Office initiative to overhaul the estates of the state.
