MAXI Construction has announced that the company has landed a £3.3 million contract to complete the construction of a new local authority and community facility in Whitburn.
Awarded by West Lothian Council, the contract will see Maxi remodel the existing two-storey Burgh Halls building, construct a two-storey steel-frame extension, provide fit-out works to the existing building and extension to provide a library, community halls, museum, CIS (Customer Information Service) office and local authority offices, and undertake external works including a new civic space.
The project team includes architect/principal designer Smith Scott Mullan, QS Brownriggs, structural engineer Bayne Stevenson Associates and M&E engineer EDP Consulting Engineers.
John Aitchison, Maxi Construction’s MD, said, “We’re delighted to continue our association with West Lothian Council in the provision of partnership centres, this time for the benefit of the local community in Whitburn.”
Depute council leader Kirsteen Sullivan commented, “This is a significant investment in the town and the new building better meets the needs of customers by hosting a wider variety of services under one roof as well as providing new spaces for the local community. Unfortunately the project has been delayed but the important thing is that work is now getting back underway and a fantastic new venue will be created for the town.
“We have high hopes for the new centre in Whitburn which is really about creating a new, modern facility that delivers a range of services within the town centre.”
