Manufacturer fits out new school campus

Posted onPosted on 11th May

A new £18m primary school campus has been fitted out by Mansfield-based Deanestor, working with main contractor Morgan Sindall Construction.

The new Prestwick North Education Campus has replaced two primary schools and was delivered for South Ayrshire Council.

Deanestor fitted out 125 rooms across the campus based around 42 room types. These were designed to create inspiring spaces where students can socialise, learn and flourish and include 22 classrooms, flexible learning zones, multi-purpose hall, sports hall, drama studio, and reception area.

The fitted furniture manufactured by Deanestor – primarily storage units, shelving, and worktops – were finished in maple as part of the biophilic design strategy which uses a mix of natural tones to reflect the local landscape.

Deanestor installed more than 1,200 items of loose and fitted furniture for this project, from storage space to white goods, tables, chairs, staging, dispensers, and whiteboards.

Designed by BDP, the campus will accommodate more than 800 pupils who will benefit from a wide range of spaces for teaching and learning, such as interactive play areas, an early years’ centre, outdoor classrooms, and first-class sports facilities.

William Tonkinson, managing director of Deanestor, said: “We are very proud to have been part of the team responsible for this fantastic new campus which was completed on budget and to the highest quality standards.

“I am pleased to report that we have now been awarded a second school campus fit out contract by Morgan Sindall Construction, to the value of £1.7m, working once again with South Ayrshire Council, hub South West, and BDP.”
