Maxi awarded construction works deal at West Lothian school campus
Maxi Construction, the Livingston-based contractor, has been awarded a contract from West Lothian Council for Phase 3 and 4 works at Ogilvie School Campus in Livingston.
The works include:
- the construction of two extensions to the existing school to provide three new classrooms and a general purpose room
- internal refurbishment works to parts of the existing building to provide two new changing rooms, a new soft play room, two chill rooms, store rooms, support accommodation, toilets, new windows and external doors with ramped access to provide level access throughout the building
- external works including new play areas and a fully refurbished and remodelled car park.
The start date for the works will be confirmed when clear government guidance has been provided about a return date for non-essential construction works.
John Aitchison, Maxi Construction’s managing director, said: “The award of this contract at this difficult time for the construction industry provides some security for our employees and supply chain members. We’re also delighted to build on our extensive experience of delivering extension and refurbishment works in live school environments.”
West Lothian’s executive councillor for education, David Dodds, added: “West Lothian has one of the best school estates in the country, and we are committed to investing to ensure all our pupils have the best possible platform for learning.
“I look forward to seeing work continue at Ogilvie School Campus when conditions allow.”
The project team includes West Lothian Council Construction Services as architect, Wardell Armstrong as civil & structural engineer, David R Murray & Associates as mechanical & electrical engineer and Brownriggs as CDM advisor.
