Sensory fit out commences at Inverurie SEN campus
May 21 2019
A purpose-built home for St Andrews School for children with special educational needs (SEN) is filling out as Aberdeenshire Council turns its attention to the design and manufacture of bespoke furniture fittings and equipment.
Robertson Construction is already on-site for Inverurie Community Campus, designed by architects Halliday Fraser Munro to accommodate 1,600 pupils when it opens its doors in 2020. Now they are joined by Deanestor Furniture Solutions who have been awarded a £3m furniture contract as part of the £55m build.
Deanestor MD Ramsay McDonald said: “The scale and complexity of the campus and the range of facilities we are fitting out demonstrates our capabilities and expertise in furniture manufacturing, procurement and project management. Our designers are working closely with the design and construction team to implement the contemporary theme for the multi-purpose spaces and to deliver a really inspirational and innovative environment for learning and teaching.”
No less than 360 rooms will be fitted out for the build including community facilities such as a youth centre, community hall, swimming pool as well as a range of sensory items such as padded walls and floors, fibre optics, a ball pit, trampolines and a water bed.
