3DReid bags approval for five schools on Western Isles

  • 3 Comments

3DReid has secured planning permission to build five schools for the Western Isles Schools Project in Scotland

The £60 million scheme for Western Isles Council in partnership with Faithful+Goulds is the first hybrid PPP procurement project to be approved in Scotland.

The contract is for a standard design and build project, tendered at Stage D, but with the added requirement for facilities management and building lifecycle expertise.

Alex Donaldson, partnerships director at 3DReid said: ‘Our key aspiration for these community focused schools is to create innovative, sustainable and environmental design solutions and we look forward to working closely with the rest of the team and the local community to achieve this.’

3DReid expect to start on site by July 2010 and aim to complete the scheme by July 2012.

  • Goodness I doubt if you could find a more brutal set of school projects in more beautiful settings.

    The Tarbet project looks particularly crass
