Ian Gibson, managing director, Robertson Facilities Management, said: “This is a major win for Robertson, and is yet more evidence of our status as a trusted contractor in the education sector.

“We are already hard at work, with our development team currently advising on designs. Across the contract, we will be offering Hard FM and life cycle maintenance services and look forward to welcoming pupils to what will be a state-of-the-art facility upon completion.”

The £42 million project is being led by hub North Scotland, built by Balfour Beatty and was designed by JM Architects.
