Airdrie primary schools set for extension

HUB south West has signed a design and build project with Linear Design & Construct (LDC) to undertake an extension of the All Saints & Rochsolloch Primary Schools in Airdrie on behalf of North Lanarkshire Council.

The £1.086m project, which will begin once Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted, is expected to be complete by Christmas this year and will involve the addition of extensions to both primary schools, which occupy the same building. The project will allow both schools to increase capacity to meet future demand.

Michael McBrearty, chief executive of hub South West said, “Having worked with LDC as a sub-contractor on various hub South West educational projects, we are pleased to embark again upon an interesting development on behalf of North Lanarkshire Council with LDC as main contractor. hub South West has collaborated frequently with North Lanarkshire Council on Education and Early Years developments and we look forward to building on this portfolio with the extensions of All Saints and Rochsolloch Primary Schools.”

Work to date has seen LDC manage the project from inception to design conclusion with its design team, JM Architects and Blyth & Blyth (Structural & M&E).

Ryan Broadley, MD of Glasgow-based LDC added, “Building on the successful relationship we have forged with hub South West over the past two years, our appointment to this project as main contractor demonstrates a continued confidence in our approach. We are delighted that our performance has been recognised throughout the hub south west due diligence process and are looking forward to building a lasting relationship with North Lanarkshire Council during the construction phase.”
