Contract for Redwell Primary in Alloa awarded

The £8.3m contract to build a new primary school in Alloa has been awarded to Elgin-based Robertson Construction Group.

The 18 classroom Redwell Primary is being built to replace the existing St John's and Claremont Primary Schools.

It will be able to accommodate more than 430 pupils with room for further expansion if required.

The energy efficient school, which will serve pupils in the west of Alloa, is due to open in August 2014.

Robertson was selected as the main building contractor to deliver the project on behalf of hub East Central Scotland Limited.

It is part of a £500m investment programme from the Scottish government covering construction projects throughout Forth Valley, Fife and Tayside.

Derek Shewan, managing director of Robertson Construction Group, said: "As part of our delivery of the new school, we are also looking forward to creating training and career opportunities for local people - further evidence of the new school's long-lasting impact on the community."
