Posted onPosted on 8th Nov

Mansfield-based Deanestor, one of the UK’s leading school fitout specialists, has been awarded another major contract in the education sector – a project worth more than £3m to fit out the new 1,600-place Perth High School.

 The school is one of the first secondary schools in the UK to be built to Passivhaus standards.

 This will be Deanestor’s 14th contract for Robertson Construction and it follows its successful completion of a number of award-winning school projects in Scotland.

Deanestor will be fitting out 274 rooms across the new campus and will manufacture or procure more than 2,700 items of fitted and loose furniture, including storage solutions, changing benches, teaching kitchen, learning walls, tables and chairs, equipment for sports and arts, workbenches and tools for technology and engineering.

Commenting on this latest contract award, William Tonkinson, managing director of Deanestor, said: “This project will provide a fantastic learning and teaching environment for young people, and we are delighted to be playing our part and working with the Robertson team once again. We have successfully delivered a number of projects for Perth & Kinross Council and have a strong track record in fitting out Passivhaus schools. We are looking forward to starting on site next year.”

Deanestor specialises in the design and project management of large campus fitout projects and award-winning school architecture. It manufactures and installs robust and flexible loose and fixed furniture solutions for early years, primary, SEN, and secondary education, fitting out areas such as classrooms, science laboratories, ICT, design and technology, atria, social dining spaces, break-out areas, sports facilities, and changing rooms.
