Beatlie ASN School Campus contract awarded to Castle Building Services
Castle Building Services has added to its education sector portfolio with a secured contract to provide full mechanical, electrical and public health services at Beatlie ASN School Campus in Livingston.
The company, which employs 50 staff in Scotland, with offices in Edinburgh and Glasgow, was appointed by main contractor Morrison Construction.
Castle Building Services will be supplying full mechanical, electrical and public health services including ventilation, comfort cooling, heating, domestics, drainage, life safety systems, internal and external lighting, lighting protection and earthing, security and data, sound and audio visual and all external services.
West Lothian’s Beatlie school is to move from its 1960s home to a new purpose-built campus.
The £14 million new build has been agreed by West Lothian Council’s education executive and is being delivered by Hub South East.
Beatlie school provides specialist education for pupils aged 3 to 18 with severe and complex educational needs and profound medical needs.
The new purpose-built facility will be a centre of excellence for children and young people, an NHS Child Development Centre is also located within the Beatlie school campus, providing assessment and support facilities for families across West Lothian.
The school will include a range of facilities including a life skills area, hydrotherapy pool, a multi-purpose hall and sensory garden. In addition, the installation of state-of-the-art assistive technology products will help facilitate greater independence for those with mobility issues.
Castle Building Services has been appointed onto a number of specialist education projects via Morrison Construction, most recently completing Lockhart Campus, in Ardrossan, which provides an exceptional learning environment for pupils who require additional support across their educational journey.
The company, via Morrison Construction, has also recently completed the first stage of a £60m education project in Winchburgh, West Lothian.
It is part of West Lothian Council’s biggest-ever investment in education and includes the build of two secondary schools and a primary school, as well as a sport and wellbeing hub in Winchburgh.
Managing director at Castle Building Services, Andrew Dawson, said: “Beatlie, will have a positive impact on young people, families and the community of West Lothian.
“It is impressive to see how assistive technologies will also enhance the school environment for Beatlie’s young people, enabling them with more access to enjoy their surroundings.
“We are proud to play a role and thank Morrison Construction for its confidence in our ability to deliver the full mechanical, electrical and public health services.”
Allan Cunningham, operations director for Morrison Construction Building Central, added: “Working with supply chain members who share our values is a key part of our Sustainable Growth Strategy and I am delighted that we have been able to appoint Castle once more. Together with our partners at Hub South East and West Lothian Council we have built strong, collaborative relationships that have delivered first-class educational facilities, and Castle have been part of that process.”
