3DReid go back to school with Highland fling
February 9 2010
This hybrid model is designed to amend the PPP mechanism by securing funding via a government grant rather than the private sector - essentially a standard Design & Build contract.
Western Isles Council have thus established an arms length Special Purpose Vehicle to appoint a private sector development partner (Faithful + Gould). Together these partners tender for design, build, lifecycle and facilities management elements.
3DReid emerged the winner from this process and will develop five schools in the region including the Nicolson institute, Stornoway; Sir E Scott School, Tarbert; West Side Primary School, Barvas; Balivanich Primary School, Benbecula and Bayble Primary School, Point.
This will entail a range of specific approaches for each individual location from refurbishment, remodelling and extension to full new build as required.
3DReid are aspiring to ensure that each school will be “community focussed” and will employ the full consultant team.
Construction work is timetabled to commence in July 2010 for completion by July 2012.
