Morrison Construction's Building Central business has been appointed to a new £55m contract to build the Galashiels Community Campus on behalf of Scottish Borders Council and Hub South East.

The new school will replace the outdated Galashiels Academy building within Scott Park, utilising the existing site to create a facility that will accommodate over 1,000 pupils. The project will feature extensive landscaping that will enable more of the park to return to public access.

Bill Hocking, Chief Executive of Galliford Try, said: “Our Morrison Construction business has an exceptional record in creating education campuses throughout Scotland and we are delighted to have been chosen by Scottish Borders Council and Hub South East for this project. Education is a key sector for our Sustainable Growth Strategy and we look forward to working with all the stakeholders and the community to create an outstanding educational facility for local people.”
