Heron Bros was the lead contractor for Crookfur Primary School and Nursery extension and extensive refurbishment in East Renfrewshire, Scotland. The £8m project is part of the Scottish Government’s Schools for the Future investment programme and has increased the school’s capacity to 420 pupil places and 90 nursery places.

The existing 1970’s school building underwent major refurbishment works in the live and fully occupied site to bring the school up to current DDA compliance, providing a new state of the art facility to serve the community for years to come.

The new works comprised of the design and construction of a new single storey nursery school extension to the existing primary school, provision of temporary accommodation and the phased refurbishment of the existing primary school.

The refurbishment works consisted of asbestos removal, complete replacement of roof covering, replacement of all windows and external doors, as well as the replacement of internal and external stairs.

Externally, an all-weather 5 aside pitch was provided along with an external play area for the nursery building. Heron Bros also made minor alterations to the existing carpark and some new surfacing to the existing access road.
