Work begins on £3m extension at Dundee school

ROBERTSON Construction Tayside has commenced work on a £3 million extension at Dundee’s Mill O’Mains Primary School.

The Dundee City Council project will see the build of a 380 square metre building, with two linked multi-purpose rooms, alterations to form a new entrance and multi-purpose space, new toilets, out of hour access to the refurbished gym, and new changing facilities.

For economies of scale, the local authority said it also included the upgrading works of the kitchen/dining area, renewal of roof coverings to various areas, and renewal of boilers, ventilation plant and other services to the school.

Kevin Dickson, regional managing director of Robertson Construction Tayside, said, “We are pleased to continue our on-going relationship with Dundee City Council as the construction partner of choice to deliver another quality facility within the region.

“Mill O’Mains plays an integral role in the community and we look forward to delivering facilities that will enjoyed by the entire community for years to come.”

Councillor Steven Rome, depute convener of Dundee City Council’s city development committee, added, “Many communities across the city have already benefitted from similar arrangements with their local primary or secondary school.

“This project extends the same opportunity to people in Mill O’Mains to access up to date facilities in their community and for us to bring forward planned improvements to the school building itself.”

The local authority said that it expects work to be completed next year (2022).
