(It) .. Aims to create learning environments which inspire all young people …; provide teachers with 21st Century work places…; provide access to facilities … by all members of the local community” BSF Chief Executive, Tim Byles: “BSF allows us to banish thoughts of schools from the past. Good science and good science teaching is based on rigorous principles of observation and experiment. Science educators, having considered what they want to be happening in school science laboratories in the future, are best placed to work with design teams to ensure that teaching and learning spaces serve these requirements. Not only that, they should ensure that the physical and virtual learning environment is designed to maximise flexibility for future development.” Wave 1 (including Pathfinders) Start of First Start of OJEU Selected Financial WAVE 1 project notice bidder Close Constructio n School Notes Open Bradford Dec 03 Oct 04 Dec 05 Dec 06 Jul 06 Sep 08 Bristol Dec 03 Dec 04 Sep 05 Jun 06 Jul 06 Sep 07 Greenwich Oct 04 Jan 05 Nov 06 Framework procurement Knowsley Jul 04 Jun 05 Dec 06 Dec 07 Aug 07 Lancashire Jun 04 Apr 05 Feb 06 Dec 06 Oct 06 Sep 08 Leeds Feb 05 Aug 05 Nov 06 Apr 07 Mar 07 Sep 08 Leicester Mar 05 May 05 Jul 06 Dec 07 Aug 07 Lewisham Oct 04 Apr 05 Mar 07 Dec 07 Jul 07 Manchester Jun 04 n/a n/a Oct 06 Sep 06 Sep 08 Framework procurement Newcastle Jun 04 Dec 04 Aug 06 Jul 07 Jan 07 Sep 08 Newham Feb 05 Aug 06 Feb 08 Sheffield Jan 04 Jan 05 May 06 Jul 07 Apr 07 Solihull Jun 04 Mar 05 Jul 06 May 07 May 07 STaG Aug 05 Jul 06 Aug 07 Dec 07 Jan 08 Stoke May 05 Dec 05 Oct 07 Framework procurement Sunderland Mar 06 Mar 07 Oct 07 Mar 08 Mar 08 Framework procurement Waltham Forest Oct 04 Aug 05 Sep 06 Aug 07 Mar 07 Sep 08 www.partnershipsforschools.org.uk Wave 2 First Start of OJEU Selected Financial Start of WAVE 2 project notice bidder Close Building School Notes Open Birmingham Jun 05 Jan 07 Hackney Jan 05 Jun 06 Sep 07 Haringey Aug 05 Oct 06 Feb 08 Framework procurement Hull Jun 07 Jul 08 Islington Apr 05 May 06 Jun 07 Feb 08 Lambeth Jul 05 Mar 06 Nov 06 Dec 06 Jan 07 Feb 08 Liverpool Jun 05 Aug 06 Feb 07 Jan 08 Mar 08 Middlesbrough Mar 07 Sep 07 Nottingham Jul 05 Nov 06 Jan 08 Tower Hamlets Mar 06 Feb 07 www.partnershipsforschools.org.uk BSF Adviser Frameworks Legal …….
