Milestone moment for Moorpark Primary build

A milestone has been reached in the construction of the new Moorpark Primary in North Ayrshire.

North Ayrshire provost councillor Anthea Dickson laid the final brick to mark the building being secure and watertight.

Work on the £10.85 million facility, being carried out by Clark Contracts, started in 2021 and is on course to be complete by September this year.

The school is adjacent to the existing school and forms part of North Ayrshire Council’s Capital Investment Programme. It will have 12 primary classes and a 24-place early years facility.

The building is structured so that there is ‘minimal’ air permeability. A natural ventilation strategy will provide natural, fresh air throughout the year and solar panels will be installed to provide renewable electricity.

Provost Anthea Dickson said, “It is a real honour to mark this latest milestone and we are all looking forward to the school being complete later this year. We are sure it will be a brilliant asset for the staff, young people, their families and community for years to come.”

Clark Contracts director Michael Scanlan added, “We are delighted to have reached this major milestone and we look forward to continuing our relationship with North Ayrshire Council and the design team over the coming months, as the project progresses to completion.”
