We are delighted to have worked with hub South West and Kier Construction on the development of the new Ayr Academy in South Ayrshire.
The new structure at Ayr’s Craigie Estate will add to Curtis Moore’s vast portfolio of work within the education sector throughout Scotland.
Construction work on the South Ayrshire Council project got underway in January last year. The Curtis Moore team started on site at the end of October 2016 conducting the Kalzip roofing works which is now complete.
It is now at an important stage in its development and is substantially wind and watertight, and ready for the internal fit out.
The new £25m project at will have capacity for up to 1,000 pupils, and incorporates sports and community facilities including sports pitches, a multi-use hall, two gyms and a dance studio.
The new school is being funded by South Ayrshire Council through the Scottish Government’s Scotland’s schools for the future programme.
At the project’s peak, it will require 200 people working on site, benefitting the local economy in Ayrshire by creating jobs.
The school is due to open in August 2017 so that students can enjoy the new facilities in the upcoming academic year.
We look forward to seeing the end result and hope that the children and local community in Ayrshire will enjoy their new school.
