CLARK Contracts has announced it has been awarded a £2.5 million refurbishment contract at West Primary School in Paisley.

The firm will complete the upgrade of existing roof coverings, installation of new windows, stonework repair and replacement of render.

West Primary was originally built in 1938 as a high school but is now mainly a primary school. The facility also includes a nursery, language unit, youth and sports services department and community dance group.

Councillor Jim Paterson, convenor of Renfrewshire Council’s education and children’s services policy board said, “The exterior refurbishment works at West Primary School are part of our continuous schools investment programme, ensuring that our children and young people are learning in the best possible environment. This programme of refurbishing and building schools is an investment in our children’s future and it will be exciting to see how these improvements benefit the children of West Primary.”

Clark Contracts director Michael Scanlan added, “Having recently completed the refurbishment and extension of Mossvale Primary School and nursery class and St James’ Primary School and the construction of St Fergus Primary school, both in Paisley, we are looking forward to delivering another local school project for Renfrewshire Council.”
