BAM delivers new community campus in Fife


BAM Construction has completed the handover of the new £21.5 million Windmill Community Campus in Kirkcaldy.

The building, which will open for the new term on 17th August, will house Viewforth High School with accommodation for up to 600 new pupils. Facilities include state-of-the-art teaching spaces with integrated technology, a new library and a sports centre.

Fife’s Rosslyn School is also moving to a purpose built facility at the campus that includes a fully equipped sensory room.

The campus is the final project to be built under the Building Fife’s Future Framework, which previously delivered Dunfermline High School in 2012 and Auchmuty High School in 2013.

Doug Keillor, Regional Director, BAM Construction said, “Windmill Community Campus is an inspiring and innovative building and a fine example of how a strong public and private sector relationship can deliver a first class building, on time and within budget, that will greatly benefit the local community.”

Kirkcaldy area chair, Cllr Neil Crooks, said, “This is an exciting time in Fife as we near the completion of both Windmill Community Campus and Levenmouth Academy, with the new Waid campus due to open next summer.

“This is a new way of working for the Council where we are able to provide state-of-the-art high schools which will incorporate a range of community facilities, all under one roof. This community approach has a range of benefits for pupils, parents, the wider community and the Council.”
