NEW £18M PRIMARY SCHOOL CAMPUS IN SOUTH AYRSHIRE FITTED OUT BY FIFE-BASED DEANESTOR

InvestFife news

May 16, 2023

A new £18m primary school campus has been fitted out by Dunfermline-based Deanestor, working with main contractor Morgan Sindall Construction. The new Prestwick North Education Campus has replaced Glenburn Primary and St Ninian’s Primary School. It was delivered for South Ayrshire Council by hub South West Scotland.

 

Deanestor fitted out 125 rooms across the campus based around 42 room types. These were designed to create inspiring spaces where students can socialise, learn and flourish and include 22 classrooms, flexible learning zones, multi-purpose hall, sports hall, drama studio, and reception area.

 

Designed by BDP, the campus will accommodate more than 800 pupils who will benefit from a wide range of spaces for teaching and learning, such as interactive play areas, an early years’ centre, outdoor classrooms, and first-class sports facilities.

 

The fitted furniture manufactured by Deanestor – primarily storage units, shelving, and worktops – were finished in maple as part of the biophilic design strategy which uses a mix of natural tones to reflect the local landscape.

 

Deanestor installed more than 1,200 items of loose and fitted furniture for this project, from storage space to white goods, tables, chairs, staging, dispensers, and whiteboards.

 

Ramsay McDonald, Managing Director of Deanestor in Scotland said, “We are very proud to have been part of the team responsible for this fantastic new campus which was completed on budget and to the highest quality standards. This is an inclusive and welcoming environment for contemporary learning and teaching.”

 

“I am pleased to report that we have now been awarded a second school campus fit out contract by Morgan Sindall Construction, to the value of £1.7m, working once again with South Ayrshire Council, hub South West, and BDP.”

 

Councillor Stephen Ferry, South Ayrshire Council’s Portfolio Holder for Education, said, “We are committed to providing children and young people with the very best possible start in life. Prestwick Educational Campus will provide a modern and engaging environment for learning and will ensure pupils can thrive throughout their years at the school.”

 

Michael Ross, Chief Executive of hub South West Scotland said, “We are incredibly proud to have led the delivery of this project for South Ayrshire Council which was completed early and on budget. The Prestwick Campus was a real team effort and a huge well done goes out to all partners involved who have gone above and beyond, delivering the project to the highest quality standards.”

 

Sustainability was an important driver in the design of the campus, which runs on electric power. It has roof-mounted solar panels and air source heat pumps to provide heating. An allotment garden, willow garden and sensory garden give students and children from the surrounding community the opportunity to learn about nature.

Deanestor manufactures and installs robust and flexible loose and fixed furniture solutions for early years, primary, SEN, and secondary education, fitting out areas such as classrooms, science laboratories, ICT, design and technology, atria, social dining spaces, break-out areas, sports facilities, and changing rooms. Its experienced designers and project managers work with architects, contractors and directly with schools and local authorities, advising on specification of furniture and equipment to help deliver inspirational and state-of-the-art learning environments.
