Kier Construction to build new primary school in East Ayrshire

The existing Netherthird Primary School which is to be replaced

EAST Ayrshire Council has appointed Kier Construction as the preferred contractor for the build of a new primary school at Netherthird.

The local authority said its project team and school head teacher, Jemma Donnelly, will be working closely with Kier Construction over the next few weeks to formalise the delivery programme for the build – including developing a final design solution that can be delivered within the budget.

Councillor Fiona Campbell, cabinet member for skills and learning said, “This is a really exciting time for Netherthird Primary School and the whole community. Now that the council has appointed Kier Construction, the project team, with head teacher Jemma Donnelly, will be able to press ahead with developing a design for the new build school. They will be keeping parents, carers and the young people updated throughout the process.”
