Curtis Moore is delighted to have won the contract for the new Inverurie Community Campus which will be a landmark in the Scottish Government’s new building programme – ‘Schools for the Future’ – in that it is the first of a number of schools to be built to accommodate the growing population of the future and Curtis Moore is thrilled to be part of this.
This latest project is one of many within the education sector that Curtis Moore have been awarded, adding to our extensive portfolio of schools and community campus work. The development will be a state of the art contribution to the education sector and the local community.
Initial work, by main contractor Robertson, to prepare the ground began in January to help form the car park which is being built on the Victoria Park playing field.
Work begins on site
Work on the main building at a new £55 million North-east school campus began in May and the Curtis Moore team are due to start on site in September. The development will be a state of the art contribution for education for staff and pupils and a landmark in our new building programme.
Once built, the new school will feature 73 classrooms and labs, a large dining hall and kitchen, and a conference room. It will have room for 1,600 pupils making it one of the largest schools in the north-east and will provide a range of amenities for the wider community – including outdoor pitches and a health centre.
Councillor Lesley Berry, who represents Inverurie and District, said: “It is incredible, there are a lot of projects going on and with the likes of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route being delayed I think people sometimes just expect things like this to be delayed.
“Robertson’s has a good reputation for finishing projects on time and long may that continue.”
A word from Euan Walker
Managing Director of Curtis Moore, Euan Walker said, “We’re delighted to have secured the Inverurie Community Campus, adding to our vast portfolio of education projects such as Alford Community Campus and Wick Community Campus to name a few.”
The school’s current playing fields on the south of the site are to be developed, with the new secondary school and replacement St Andrew’s School built there before the demolition of the existing facility.
