Dunfermline-based Deanestor, one of the UK’s leading school fitout specialists, has been awarded its largest contract to date in the education sector – a £5million project for BAM to manufacture furniture and fit out the two high schools on the new Dunfermline Learning Campus.
The Deanestor team will supply and install more than 42,000 items of loose and fitted furniture for St Columba’s RC High School and Woodmill High School – that are relocating to Dunfermline Learning Campus in Fife.
Due to open by Summer 2024, the high school project is part of a wider learning campus development, which also sees the construction of the new Fife College. The schools project is being delivered by the Council’s partner, hub East Central Scotland.
Ramsay McDonald, Managing Director for Deanestor in Scotland, told fbm Update, “This is our largest school fitout contract to date, and we are even more thrilled that it is local to our Scottish headquarters in Dunfermline. We are pleased to be playing our part in such a visionary and ambitious education scheme which will provide world class facilities for students, the local community, and businesses across the region.”
Designed by AHR, AECOM and Rybka, the 27,000sqm transformational scheme will offer a consolidated approach to learning and life skills that will support a clearer pathway from secondary education to training, further education and into employment.
