Graham begins work on Dumfries Learning Town programme

WCN Editorial Team 8 Aug 2016 EUROPE BUILDINGS

UK-based Graham Construction has been selected as the principal contractor by Hub South West to deliver three projects for Phase 1 of the Dumfries Learning Town programme in Scotland.

Under the contract, Graham will deliver St Joseph’s College, North West Campus and centre of excellence The Bridge.

The company has already finished the enabling works on the £23M redevelopment of St Joseph’s College — the first project in the £60M Phase 1 of the two-phase programme.

Work in St Joseph’s College involves the restoration of the original Grade B listed historic stone building, which was constructed in the early 19th century.

The work also involves the demolition and construction of a new wing, a new 3G sports facility and the reinstatement of grass pitches.

Graham Construction regional director Gary Holmes said: “Dumfries Learning Town is an exciting project and we are looking forward to working with the partners to deliver a new approach to education for the area, starting with the redevelopment of historic St Joseph’s College.

“We have a wide experience of delivering first-class educational facilities across Scotland, from refurbishing existing premises to designing and creating bespoke buildings. The Dumfries programme is one of the largest we have undertaken to date and is a challenge we relish.”

Construction work on the main college building is expected to start in August 2016.
