A Birmingham law firm has advised on a major schools project.
Worcestershire County Council has completed a £60 million Private Finance Initiative for the construction of seven new schools and a public library in Bromsgrove.
There will be two high schools, two middle schools and three first schools with total pupil places of more than 4,000. Martineau Johnson advised the council.
HBG Construction will build the new schools and library and HBG Facilities Management will manage and maintain them for 30 years.
Peter Parkes, council PFI project manager, said: "This has been one of the best projects I have ever worked on - we have closed on time and within budget.
"This project will offer the local community access to a wide range of new and exciting facilities and it will make a major contribution to our overall aim of continuing to raise educational standards throughout the county of Worcestershire."
Catherine Burke, partner and head of projects at Martineau Johnson, added: "Many children will benefit from new, state of the art facilities which will take them from nursery to the end of their secondary education."
