Arc-Tech (Scotland) to support redevelopment of West Lothian primary school
Glasgow-based building services provider Arc-Tech (Scotland) has been appointed to a new education contract in West Lothian with works comprising the construction of a new build extension to Pinewood Primary School in Blackburn.
The firm will support BAM Construct UK, in partnership with hub South East Scotland, with a £1 million turnkey mechanical and electrical services package commencing in November 2021 over a six-month duration.
Water, ventilation and air conditioning, as well as all fire safety, lighting and data systems will be amongst a suite of services that will contribute towards the improvement of teaching facilities for both staff and pupils.
Building works will include the demolition of an existing teaching block that will make way for a new games hall, dining, office accommodation and additional classrooms
Pinewood forms part of West Lothian Council’s ambitious £26.5m investment programme in schools for pupils with additional support needs.
John Gallacher, Arc-Tech managing director, said: “Our experience within the Education sector is well known but it is a great privilege for our business to be involved in this project, providing vital services to support the education of children with additional support needs. We would like to thank our partner BAM in appointing us to this contract and look forward to commencing works later this year.”
Paul Bell, BAM construction manager, said: “BAM has appointed Arc-Tech based on their educational sector experience. We are delighted to have them on board and we look forward to bringing this first-rate educational facility to completion in 2022.”
