BAM Construction nears completion of ‘outstanding’ £7m school

BAM Construction is set to complete its build of the new £7 million Cedarbank School in Livingston later this month.

Being delivered alongside hub South East, the facility will provide education for secondary pupils with additional learning needs around West Lothian.

Currently, pupils are spread across three different facilities. However, it is expected that they will be brought together this month in the ‘superb’ modern, purpose-built facility at The James Young High School campus.

The new school features a multi-purpose hall; specialist classrooms for craft, design and technology, music, science, home economics, art, IT and life skills; as well as a kitchen/dining area and outdoor learning spaces.

Roddy Clark, hub South East’s operations director, said, “We’re proud to continue our positive working relationship with our partners in West Lothian Council as we deliver another inspiring learning estate development.

“I commend everyone involved in progressing the build of this new specialist facility during the challenging circumstances of the last few years. The feedback from those pupils and staff who have visited site during the construction of Cedarbank has been positive and it’s encouraging to see the excitement grow as they get ever closer to being able to enjoy their new, modern learning space.”

Kris Moir, project manager at BAM Construction, added, “We are delighted to have supported Hub South East Scotland and West Lothian Council on another first-class educational facility.

“This scheme has drawn on BAM’s expertise and extensive experience as a leading education provider in Scotland and we are proud to have played our part in the creation of this new modern learning environment that will inspire pupils for many years to come.”

Leader of West Lothian Council, Lawrence Fitzpatrick, said, “I’m delighted that the outstanding new Cedarbank School will be ready for pupils from next month.

“The excellent facilities at the new Cedarbank will bring the whole school together in one place, ensuring we can deliver the best possible education for the young people who attend.”
