New Elgin High School handed over

BALFOUR Beatty has announced the completion of the new £28.8 million Elgin High School.

Delivered on behalf of hub North Scotland for Moray Council, the firm has built a new teaching and sports facility adjacent to the existing Elgin High School, which will accommodate 1,000 pupils.

Hector Macaulay, Balfour Beatty’s regional MD for Scotland said, “We are delighted to hand Elgin High School over to hub North Scotland on schedule, providing students, teachers and the Moray Council with a first class educational facility that will significantly enhance the learning experience of those who attend.

“Through the project, we have made a significant and sustainable contribution to the local economy, engaging with the local supply chain and providing numerous local employment opportunities.”

Works to the second phase of the redevelopment will see Balfour Beatty demolish the old school to make way for a 3G sports pitch and upgraded parking facilities.
