ROBERTSON has landed a 25-year contract to supply facilities management services at a school in Aberdeen.

The firm has been named preferred bidder for the contract at the Aberdeen South of the City High School, which is due for completion by the start of 2018.

The £42 million project is being led by hub North Scotland and was designed by JM Architects.

Robertson said its facilities management division won a competitive tender and is already supporting the project. The school will host up to 1,350 pupils and is a replacement for Torry and Kincorth Academies. Facilities will include a three-storey teaching block, a sports block with swimming pool and an all-weather sports pitch.

Ian Gibson, managing director at Robertson Facilities Management said, “This is a major win for Robertson, and is yet more evidence of our status as a trusted contractor in the education sector. We are already hard at work, with our development team currently advising on designs.

“Across the contract, we will be offering Hard FM and life cycle maintenance services and look forward to welcoming pupils to what will be a state-of-the-art facility upon completion.”
