Ayr Academy refurbishment begins with extension demolition
South Ayrshire Council have begun work to refurbish the former Ayr Academy with demolition of a 1930s rear extension to provide additional playground space, external teaching areas and car parking.

This will clear the way for the historic school’s conversion to a new primary school following Ayr Academy’s relocation to a BDP-designed new build at the Craigie Estate.

The current Fort Street building was erected in 1880 and will be comprehensively refurbished for its new guise as Ayr Grammar, hosting 430 pupils and 50 pre-schoolers within an on-site Early Years Centre.

Designed by BDP and delivered by Morrison Construction the new school will also include community arts facilities, an archive and registration centre.

Phase one of the conversion is expected to complete by February 2019 with work then proceeding to a refurbishment of the main building  to create an archive centre.

Hopefully they don't make a 'Kier' of it! Although, in saying inadvertant demolition seems to be a Kier USP, so this might have actually played to their strengths..
