The new Calderwood Primary was built by Morrison Construction Building Central and delivered by hub South East for West Lothian Council.
Deanestor manufactured and installed around 1,250 items of bespoke fitted furniture for this project, including learning walls, storage cabinets, adjustable shelving units, tilting craft tables, shoebox storage, and worktops.
Around 3,000 items of loose seating, furniture and equipment were also procured and fitted by Deanestor – from sports equipment and dining benches to lockers, white goods, pinboards, soft seating, banquettes, and bespoke wooden huts to provide seating and storage in different areas around the school.
Greig Jamieson, Commercial Director at Hub South East Scotland, said: “Deanestor contributed greatly to the fantastic project that is Calderwood Primary School which was handed over early to West Lothian Council. This was a particularly impressive feat given the challenging market conditions.”
“Feedback has been incredibly positive, and it is encouraging to see how excited pupils and staff are to begin their learning journey in their new school. We look forward to building on this success with Deanestor on further projects including the new Winchburgh Schools.”
Designed by JM Architects, the new school features semi-open plan classroom accommodation with adjacent break-out zones and a series of flexible, interchangeable spaces. This educational environment is designed to encourage collaborative learning and to allow pupils of all ages to interact and learn from each other.
The fitout contract at Calderwood Primary follows Deanestor’s successful delivery of a £1m project for Morrison Construction for the manufacture and installation of fixed furniture for Barony Campus in East Ayrshire – a £68m, 2,500-pupil school.
Deanestor has since been awarded the £1.8m furniture and fitout contract for a new £60m multi-school campus in West Lothian – its 12th contract for Morrison.
