Delayed Haddington Primary school handed over
January 15 2021
Morrison Construction is to hand over Letham Mains Primary School, Haddington, to East Lothian Council later today.
Funded entirely through developer contributions from the construction of 809 homes in the area the £8.6m school has been subject to delays brought on by Covid-19 restrictions having originally been scheduled to complete last summer.
Councillor Shamin Akhtar commented: “The construction environment over the past 10 months has been challenging and it’s a credit to all those involved that they have been able to continue working safely to complete the building."
Attention will now turn to an interior fit-out of the school ready for occupation after the February break, with a nursery scheduled to open after the Easter break.
Design work was carried out by East Lothian Council's in-house architectural team with AECOM, Currie & Brown and RSP.
