North Lanarkshire Council Phase 2 Schools and Centres 21

Morrison Construction is one of three contractor-led teams selected for this new £200 million four-year design-and-build partnering framework with North Lanarkshire Council.

Client: North Lanarkshire Council
Value: £200m
Location: North Lanarkshire

A key element of the selection process for this framework was being able to work collaboratively and to improve educational outcomes through high quality, value for money design solutions.

Although the framework has not been in place for long, Morrison Construction has already achieved its first appointment − the £8 million replacement of St Dominic's Primary School in Airdrie.

When St Dominic's burnt down earlier this year, the new framework meant the Council could organise its replacement using a fast and efficient fast track mini-tender exercise. Drawing on our wide schools experience across Scotland, our team was able to deliver a vision for a state of the art replacement school in just four weeks.

The new school will accommodate a 50-space nursery as well as 250 school pupils, and will be one of the most sustainable schools in North Lanarkshire, targeting BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and EPC A ratings. The new facilities will include flexible break out spaces for all classrooms, modern sports and drama spaces, and a large dining / social space which will form the heart of the new school.
