Start set for £27m Stevenston school
August 6 2019
Morrison Construction is set to break ground on a £27.7m additional support needs school next to Auchenharvie Academy in Stevenston, North Ayrshire, in the coming weeks.
Designed by Norr Architects the campus will house 210 pupils of all ages when up and running in 2020 and will incorporate respite and residential facilities for young people.
Amalgamating several existing schools in the local authority area the school will include a hydrotherapy pool, gym facilities, soft play, playground equipment and outdoor learning areas.
Michael McBrearty, chief executive of hub South West, said: “The ASN school and R&R facility will be a credit to North Ayrshire and will provide young people in the area with the best possible start in life. We are very pleased to be working with the Council on this project which we expect to be completed next year.”
Work on both facilities will get underway in a matter of weeks.
