Manufacturer wins 16th fitout contract with Morrison Construction in Scotland

Posted onPosted on 24th Jul

Mansfield-based Deanestor, one of the UK’s leading education fitout specialists, has been awarded its 16th contract for Morrison Construction in Scotland. The new project involves the provision of around 6,000 items of loose and fitted furniture for a primary school and community hub now under construction in Aberdeen.

 This contract for Greyhope School and Community Hub follows the successful completion of Countesswells Primary School – Deanestor’s latest school fitout to be delivered for the same project team.

Both projects are for Aberdeen City Council, and are with main contractor Morrison Construction.

The new £18m Countesswells Primary School was handed over a month ahead of programme. Deanestor fitted out 74 rooms across the two-storey school, providing nearly 5,000 items of fitted and loose furniture. These included curved shelving, bag and shoe storage, learning walls, changing benches, seating, and storage solutions.

William Tonkinson, managing director of Deanestor, said: “We are delighted to be working on another school project with this award-winning construction team. It will create a truly inspirational learning environment for local children and invaluable community facilities. Our team did a fantastic job of delivering our contract at Countesswells and contributing to the early handover.”

Michael Black, construction manager at Morrison Construction, added: “Deanestor contributed to a very successful project at Countesswells. This new two-stream school was handed over defect-free four weeks early, which was a considerable achievement. The fitout went very well and we are looking forward to working with their team on the Greyhope School project, which is now under way.”

A spokesperson for the Aberdeen City Council Client Team, working on the Greyhope School and Community Hub Project said,: “Deanestor has been easy to work with and went the extra mile to achieve client results in creating excellent collaborative, interesting and functional spaces for the school and the community.  We are looking forward to working with the Deanestor team once again.”
