Contract furniture specialist Deanestor has completed a £1.5m contract to manufacture bespoke furniture and fit out over 200 rooms for the first new secondary school to be built in Scotland in more than 25 years.

Bertha Park High School in Perth is an entirely new £32.5m school built by Robertson Construction, and delivered by hub East Central Scotland for Perth & Kinross Council.

The school has capacity for up to 1,100 pupils to accommodate an expanding local population and was built as part of the Scottish Government’s Schools for the Future programme.

Deanestor supplied and fitted more than 8,000 items of equipment for this project, including teaching aids, sports equipment, raised bleacher seating and lockers as well as soft furnishings.

It manufactured around 1,200 items of bespoke fixed and loose furniture across the school, which included 1,200m of shelving, 300m of worktops, 350 cabinets and over 150 purpose-designed seating booths for the learning plazas and other areas.

Sensory equipment and furniture were also supplied by Deanestor for up to 35 children with special educational needs.

Deanestor’s team fitted out the entire school in a 22-week programme in areas such as science laboratories, food technology, café and social dining, ICT suite, art rooms, sports changing, design technology, break-out spaces, learning plaza, offices, reception and general classrooms.

Bertha Park was designed by architects NORR to encourage collaborative learning and a high level of social integration for all age groups.

Robbie Kerr, Operations Manager at Robertson Construction, said, “Deanestor’s involvement at the pre-construction stage was invaluable.

“This gave us the benefit of more accurate cost planning, fewer design changes and most importantly, we were able to deliver exactly what the client wanted.

“We were also able to look at the M&E package at an earlier stage, locating services around the precise layout of the furniture.

The quality of the furniture is superb and everyone who has visited Bertha Park is very impressed with the internal environment.”
