Onthank Primary School

Onthank Primary School in Kilmarnock, East Ayrshire required a significant extension to the existing school to cater for expanding pupil numbers. The major challenge with this project was that construction, and demolition of previous facilities, needed to be carried out in a live school environment as the school remained open throughout the construction period.

To accommodate this, daily communication with the school was required in order to highlight the areas being worked on in order to eliminate any risks to pupils and teachers. In addition, we worked during any school holidays on the aspects of the project which were deemed to be higher risk.

The initial siteworks involved the demolition of previous facilities before laying the groundworks. Using our offsite precision manufacturing method significantly reduced the time on site and resulted in less construction traffic to and from the site throughout the process.

We also worked closely with the local community and following the construction period, developed an abandoned lot next to the school into a local community garden.
