The Winchburgh campus near Edinburgh is being delivered by Hub South East Scotland for West Lothian Council. The campus, which is due for completion this year, will provide two new secondary schools, a primary school with an early-years facility, and a sports and wellbeing hub.

The project – which is Deanestor’s 12th contract for Morrison – involves the manufacturing of bespoke furniture and fitting out over 340 rooms across the campus.

The contract includes the provision of over 300 base cabinets, 940m of white laminate worktops, over 1km of adjustable shelving, 16 teaching walls and 215 storage units, as well as write-on teaching aids, shoebox storage units and wall cupboards.

David Wright, construction manager at Morrison Construction, said: “Deanestor has successfully delivered a number of education contracts for Morrison, including the award-winning Barony Campus in Cumnock, East Ayrshire and more recently at Calderwood Primary School, which like Winchburgh, was for West Lothian Council. Their team has an impressive track record in fitting out complex multi-school campus projects and a good level of technical competence in the design, manufacture and installation of furniture for large-scale education schemes.”

Ramsay McDonald, managing director of Deanestor Scotland, said: “We are delighted to have secured our 12th project for Morrison Construction. This latest Scottish education project reaffirms our market-leading position in the education sector and our specialist capabilities – from school furniture design and manufacture to project management, logistics, procurement, and installation.”

The secondary schools – Winchburgh and Sinclair academies – have been designed by Ryder Architecture. JM Architects is designer for the new Holy Family Primary School and nursery.
