BAM secures Glasgow primary school double

Carntyne Primary

BAM Construction has been chosen to build two new primary schools in Glasgow with a combined contract value of £18 million.

The contractor was appointed by hub West Scotland, on behalf of Glasgow City Council, for the Carntyne and Blairdardie Primary School projects. Carntyne Primary will include a multi-use games area available for community use.

Carntyne is scheduled for completion in autumn 2018, with Blairdardie following in spring 2019.

Funding has been made available through Scottish Futures Trust (SFT), which delivers public infrastructure investment on behalf of the Scottish Government through the hub network and Glasgow City Council.

Bruce Dickson, regional director at BAM Construction said, “We are delighted to have been selected for this contract. The partnership between our local authorities, hub West and SFT is transforming Scotland’s school estate and creating buildings of importance for the wider community.”

Iain Marley, CEO of hub West Scotland added, “We are proud to be delivering these schools on behalf of our partner, Glasgow City Council and we are very pleased to continue our successful partnership with BAM. The projects will create high quality inspiring learning environments and bring significant benefits to local communities starting immediately during the construction period and continuing well beyond.”

BAM has previously completed a number of primary and secondary schools in both east and west Scotland including the £27 million Barrhead Secondary School for East Renfrewshire Council and Our Lady and St Patricks for West Dunbartonshire Council, valued at £25 million.
