Curtis Moore is delighted to be working with main contractor Robertson Construction on the construction of a brand new high school in Perth, in another contract win to add to our ever-increasing education portfolio.
Bertha Park High school is a brand new secondary school being built for the Perth and Kinross area, and is the first school in the UK in 30 years that has been built to accommodate an increase in population. Perth and Kinross is one of the fastest growing areas of Scotland, with a projected 24% in growth over a 25-year period, and Perth City secondary schools are predicted to be near to capacity by 2021.
The new 1100-pupil school will be constructed over four storeys on a five-hectare site to the north-west of Perth, on ground currently used for farming. Plans include a biomass-fuelled plant to heat the school building, along with playground areas, sports pitches and car parking. The school will be designed with a single sloping roof and will sit at the top of a new high street. The Curtis Moore team will be on site to install the Kalzip roofing works and rainscreen cladding to the main school building as well as the Kalzip roofing works to the small energy centre. The school is expected to be completed in 2019. This is a fantastic project that we’re proud to be working with Robertson Construction on.
