The £1.3m redevelopment of the former Albert Primary School site in North Biggar Road, east of the town centre, will see Lovell building 14 new two-bedroom flats for social rent as part of the council’s Building for the Future programme. The disused school buildings have been demolished.

Lovell, which is a framework partner of the souncil, was awarded the project following a competitive tender. The company will start work on the 40-week construction programme in spring 2013. The scheme will enable Lovell to create four new jobs and an apprenticeship locally as well as offering work experience placements in a variety of roles on site and at its Scottish office headquarters in Glasgow.
