Amey delivers total facilities management services to the Northampton Schools Private Finance Initiative across an estate of 42 schools (five secondary and 37 primary). The contract is operated by a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV), Northampton Schools Limited Partnership, and is led by Amber Infrastructure.
We service over 145,000m2 of school premises for 17,000 pupils, which includes serving more than 550,000 school meals every year.
In 2010, the schools generated 970 tonnes of waste, over 90% of which was classified as general waste. Together with our waste management providers, Shanks, we were able to re-direct 100% of the waste, avoiding sending any to landfill. The success of this project resulted in Amey being named 'National Recycling Star of the Year 2011'.
