Ryan Broadley, managing director of LDC, said, “We are delighted to see another vital education project completed to such a high standard.

“We have thoroughly enjoyed working with the teams at hub South West and North Lanarkshire Council to bring this project to fruition and look forward to working together again in future.”

Michael McBrearty, chief executive of hub South West, added, “It is fantastic to see the extension of All Saints & Rochsolloch Primary School now complete. Students and staff can now benefit from an updated and more functional space that will enhance their learning environment.

“We have collaborated frequently with North Lanarkshire Council on educational projects and early years’ developments and are delighted to have worked alongside LDC to deliver this interesting project on NLC’s behalf.”
