Three Northern Ireland contractors will tackle the UK's most remote school building project – the construction of five schools on Scotland's Western Isles.

Farrans, H&J Martin, and David Patton & Sons were picked by client Sgoiltean Ùra, a limited liability partnership owned by the local authority, for the design and construction of five schools across the Islands of Lewis, Harris and Benbecula.

The total construction value is £60m.

The schools will be predominantly new build and have a total floor space of over 22,500 square metres. There will be one secondary school, one combined primary and secondary, and three primaries.

The construction represents Lot 1 of the contract, with Lot 2, covering facilities management, awarded to Scottish firm FES. This £50m deal includes cleaning, grounds keeping, repair and maintenance of the five schools.
