Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) win bonus for Eddisons
Eddisons has won a number of additional Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) awards following a government announcement of an additional funding round.
The government initially awarded £400m in June for academies to undertake a range of improvements over the next year, as part of the annual CIF round. Since then, the scheme has been expanded to include a further £182m. Eddisons’ bids have won a further £11m across a number of academies – with one Derbyshire trust picking up an additional 4 awards for its schools, in addition to the £30m in funding awards won in June.
Ian Harrington, Head of Building Consultancy, says that the win is well deserved. “We put in a huge amount of effort with our CIF bids and some were really unlucky to miss out on the first round,” he said. “This additional tranche of funding means that many excellent projects will now have the funding to proceed, and we are delighted they will be able to do so.”
Schools are set to receive their first payments in October, with work going ahead in line with COVID-19 restrictions.
