Pupils from Alyth Primary School joined Perth and Kinross Council Leader, Ian Miller, members of the hub East Central Scotland team & Marshall Construction site staff to lay the first brick for the new building.
The event marked the progress made on transforming the school, which is part of the Council’s programme of improvements and upgrades to the school estate across Perth and Kinross. It is the latest project to be delivered by hub East Central Scotland/Marshall Construction for the Council.
The main phase of construction work started in January 2016 and when completed in 2017 it will deliver a new school and improved community facilities.
Councillor Miller said: “I am pleased to see this project progressing well as it is very important for Alyth. This is a major investment to deliver a high quality learning and teaching environment for pupils and staff as well as providing modern community facilities for local residents. We are all looking forward to seeing the finished new school open its doors early next year.”
Gary Bushnell, Chief Executive, hub East Central Scotland, said: “We look forward to handing over a high quality building next year that provides a bright, modern learning environment, which meets the needs of the community that it serves.”
Robert Marshall, Managing Director, Marshall Construction added “We are delighted to be working in collaboration with hub East Central Scotland & Perth & Kinross Council. We look forward to continuing this spirit of partnership and are confident that, with our experienced and dedicated site management team, we will do what we do best – Listen, Plan, Build & Deliver”
