LDC completes Airdrie school expansion project
hub South West’s Tier 1b construction partner Linear Design Construction (LDC) has successfully completed the extension of the All Saints & Rochsolloch Primary Schools in Airdrie.
The Design & Build project with hub South West, on behalf of North Lanarkshire Council, involved the addition of an extension to the primary school campus.
The extension has provided two extra classrooms to All Saints, whilst an internal courtyard space was reconfigured at adjoining Rochsolloch to create a further room.
The new space will increase Rochsolloch’s permanent capacity to 313 pupils from its current 255, while All Saints’ pupil roll capacity will increase by 66 places to a potential 305.
Appointed to the project in July 2020, LDC managed the project from inception to design conclusion with its design team, JM Architects and Blyth & Blyth (Structural & M&E).
Working collaboratively, the team’s commitment and professionalism ensured the project was handed over on time with zero defects in December 2020.
Ryan Broadley, managing director of LDC, said: “We are delighted to see another vital education project completed to such a high standard.
“We have thoroughly enjoyed working with the teams at hub South West and North Lanarkshire Council to bring this project to fruition and look forward to working together again in future.”
Michael McBrearty, chief executive of hub South West, said: “It is fantastic to see the extension of All Saints & Rochsolloch Primary School now complete. Students and staff can now benefit from an updated and more functional space that will enhance their learning environment.
“We have collaborated frequently with North Lanarkshire Council on educational projects and early years’ developments and are delighted to have worked alongside LDC to deliver this interesting project on NLC’s behalf.”
