Spie brings energy efficiency to Kilmarnock school

Kier Construction has handed Spie UK an £8m subcontract for mechanical and electrical works at East Ayrshire Council’s new William Mcllvanney Campus in Kilmarnock.

Spie UK’s works comprise mechanical and electrical works including the installation of low temperature hot water (LTHW), heating (including underfloor), domestic water services, syphonic drainage, data-voice, LV Switchgear, stand-by generator, lighting and power, combined heat and power unit, ventilation, fire sprinkler system, fire alarms and security systems. 

The architects, NORR, have designed the 18,360m² William Mcllvanney campus building to minimise overall energy consumption. SPie will also install a daylight-linked PIR lighting control system, including absence detection in classrooms.

The £45.3m campus will accommodate the merger of Kilmarnock Academy, James Hamilton Academy, New Farm Primary and Early Childhood Centre and Silverwood Primary. It will have approximately 1,465 secondary, 383 primary and 160 early years pupils between the ages of 2 and 18.

Spie’s contract award follows its completion of a £7m multi-technical services contract at North Ayrshire Council’s 17,000m² Garnock Community Campus, along with some 40 other Scottish education jobs over the past 10 years.

Brian McQuade, Kier Construction’s Scotland managing director said: “The Spie team brings significant mechanical and electrical works prowess to the design process, particularly in the field of energy management, which is an important part of this innovative solution.”

The school is named after William Mcllvanney, who wrote the Jack Laidlaw detective novels. He was born and educated in Kilmarnock, and died in 2015.
