BDP’s Marr College expansion gets underway
November 4 2015Marr College has got underway with the handover of phase 1 to South Ayrshire Council.
The two year project, overseen by Kier Construction and BDP, will see B-listed school bolstered by the addition of a new three storey wing, extending to the rear of the property. A separate sports pavilion also forms part of the plans and will be made available for community use out with school hours.
Brian McQuade, managing director of Kier Construction Scotland said: “Phase-1 involved the creation of a temporary science and technology building that enables the pupils and staff to decant out of the existing building in time for the phase-2 refurbishment works to commence.
“Due to the successful completion of phase-1, all works to Marr College will be carried out whilst the school remains operational.”
Marr College currently has a maximum capacity of 1,033 pupils but will be able to accommodate 1,360 pupils when the expansion is complete in winter 2017.
