Kier Construction has been appointed to deliver a £35m education campus in Kilmarnock on behalf of East Ayrshire Council which will accommodate up to 2,000 pupils.

Kilmarnock Learning Campus will incorporate a merged Kilmarnock Academy James Hamilton Academy together with Silverwood Primary, New Farm Primary and an Early Childhood Centre.

A Gaelic language school, could also join this mix subject to government approval.

Brian McQuade, managing director of Kier Construction’s Scottish business, said: “We are delighted to be working together with East Ayrshire Council on this new campus in Kilmarnock. This is a significant investment into the East Ayrshire economy and we look forward to working with the local community and providing additional employment opportunities, including apprenticeships, for suppliers and subcontractors based here.”

Kier won the work following a competitive tendering exercise amongst a group of Hub South West Scotland’s Tier 1 main contractors and is currently consulting on the designs for the shared campus.
