EOS Facades partners with Interserve Construction
Light steel frame manufacturer, EOS Facades has entered into a partnering agreement with Interserve Construction to build seven state-of-the-art new schools.
This is part of the Hertfordshire, Luton and Reading (HLR) Schools development plan, which falls under the Priority School Building Programme. EOS Facades is the appointed supplier of material for the steel framing systems (SFS) at the new HLR Schools.
This news comes on the back of an announcement from the Education Funding Agency (EFA) that Interserve Construction have won the contract worth a capital value of between £100 million and £150 million, for the first privately financed batch of schools procured under the programme.
Steve Thompson, Managing Director for EOS Facades commented: “This is a significant milestone in the evolution of EOS Facades, and demonstrates our capabilities as a leading supplier of steel framing systems. We are delighted to be involved with such a rewarding project and look forward to working with Interserve Construction in this outstanding venture.”

The schools set to benefit include: Bishop’s Hatfield Girls’ School, Hatfield, Hertfordshire; Goffs School, near Cheshunt, Hertfordshire; Kings Langley School, Kings Langley, Hertfordshire; Longdean School, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire; Reading Girls’ School, Reading, Berkshire; Stopsley High School, Luton, Bedfordshire and Westfield Academy, Watford, Hertfordshire.
