Curtis Moore is delighted to announce that the Bertha Park High School project in Perth is progressing well and on schedule.
It was only back in October of 2017 that we announced we would be a part of this project, alongside Robertson Construction, who were are currently working with on a number of projects across Scotland, and we are delighted to report that works undertaken by Curtis Moore are progressing on schedule.
Our team started on site at the beginning of this year to install the Kalzip roofing works and rainscreen cladding to the main school building, as well as to install Kalzip roofing works to the small energy centre. The roof to the main school building includes Kalzip sheets that are over 100m long which were produced on site, at eaves level.
Additional to the roofing works we are also installing Norbo Rainscreen cladding, supplied by Booth Muirie & PPC column encasements & fascia’s, supplied by MSP.
Part of a national programme to improve education in Scotland – Schools for the Future Programme – Bertha Park will be the first secondary school to be built in Perth and Kinross since 1972 which reflects the projected growth in population and the resulting house building and infrastructure required to support this.
The project has received £19.6 million of funding from the Scottish Government and was the 100th new school in the £1.8 billion programme.
Managing Director of Curtis Moore, Euan Walker said, “We’re delighted to have secured the Bertha Park High School project, adding to our vast portfolio of education projects such as Alford Community Campus, Wick Community Campus and Inverurie Campus to name a few.
Andy Cook, contracts and project manager with Perth and Kinross Council, said: “In terms of the council’s perspective the project is going very well. To date, the current programme is comfortably ahead of where it should be. We are now onto the internal elements of the school, with all the external finishing progressing well.”
Works are scheduled to be completed on site by Curtis Moore by October 2018.
