CORRIGAN Contractors has completed the build of a new nursery building at Ardgour Primary School in the Highlands.

The local firm completed the works alongside The Highland Council’s in-house property teams, as part of the local authority’s early learning and childcare (ELC) expansion project.

Managing director of the firm, Shaun Corrigan, attended Ardgour Primary School along with his three siblings, two of whom were involved in the project.

Delighted to return to where his education began, he said, “Having been born and brought up in Ardgour, and attending Ardgour Primary school, it has been a special project for us to be Principal Contractor on. A lot of the team are local to the area with some of them having attended Ardgour Primary too! Having a newly built dedicated building for children of nursery age is also a positive addition to the area.”

Education chair at The Highland Council, councillor John Finlayson, said, “It is great news that the brand-new building for ELC provision at Ardgour Primary School has now been handed over to the community. The nursery had previously been situated within the school building itself but this new dedicated building will enable us to meet the requirements of the Early Learning and Childcare (ELC) expansion programme.”
