Largest contract win for Deanestor

Posted onPosted on 10th Jan

Mansfield-based Deanestor, one of the UK’s leading school fitout specialists, has been awarded its largest contract to date in the education sector – a £5m project to manufacture furniture and fit out the two high schools on the new Dunfermline Learning Campus.

The Deanestor team will supply and install more than 42,000 items of loose and fitted furniture for St Columba’s RC High School and Woodmill High School – that are relocating to Dunfermline Learning Campus in Fife.

Due to open by Summer 2024, the high school project is part of a wider learning campus development, which also sees the construction of the new Fife College. The schools project is being delivered by the Council’s partner, hub East Central Scotland.

William Tonkinson, managing director of Deanestor said: “This is our largest school fitout contract to date and we are even more thrilled that it is local to our Scottish offices in Dunfermline. We are pleased to be playing our part in such a visionary and ambitious education scheme which will provide world class facilities for students, the local community, and businesses across the region.”

Deanestor will manufacture a range of education furniture for the new high schools, including teaching walls, storage solutions, worktops, shelving, and kitchen units. Its team will fit out over 500 rooms across both schools and the shared facilities.

The interior design theme is based around the principles of openness, connectivity, and inclusiveness. The fitted furniture and joinery from Deanestor will be finished in white and different tones of grey to reflect the history of Fife and its industrial heritage.

Deanestor 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.

The company has extensive design, technical and project management experience in fitting out large campus projects and award-winning school architecture – on time and to the highest quality standards.
