KIER Construction Scotland won the prize for best Pupil/Student Experience at the Education Buildings Scotland awards for its work at the £13 million Caol Campus in Fort William.

Kier, together with The Highland Council and architects Holmes Miller, provided a building with spaces to encourage social integration, all powered by an energy centre which provides sustainable heating.

The contractor carried out regular visits with schoolchildren throughout the build of Caol Campus and held a number of Open Doors events, providing an opportunity to see behind the scenes.

Brian McQuade, managing director of Kier Construction Scotland and North East said, “We are delighted to receive this important award, especially given the calibre of quality education projects being delivered across Scotland. Kier has a leading reputation for delivering first-class education facilities. We take great pride in providing quality educational establishments for staff and pupils to enjoy so it’s extra special to be recognised for the Pupil/Student Experience category.”
