Balfour Beatty completes £28.8 million new Elgin High School

Balfour Beatty, the international infrastructure group, has completed works to the new £28.8 million Elgin High School in Moray, on behalf of Hub North Scotland.

As part of the works, Balfour Beatty has constructed a new teaching and sports facility adjacent to the existing Elgin High School, which will cater for 1,000 pupils.

Balfour Beatty was appointed as main contractor for Elgin High School in 2016, following close collaboration with Hub North Scotland during the preconstruction phase, to provide its ultimate client, Moray Council with the most cost effective and high-quality design solution.

Hector Macaulay, Balfour Beatty’s Regional Managing Director for Scotland, said: “We are delighted to hand Elgin High School over to Hub North Scotland on schedule, providing students, teachers and the Moray Council with a first class educational facility that will significantly enhance the learning experience of those who attend.

“Through the project, we have made a significant and sustainable contribution to the local economy, engaging with the local supply chain and providing numerous local employment opportunities.”

Works to the second phase of the redevelopment scheme are due to commence imminently and will see Balfour Beatty demolish the old school to make way for the construction of a new 3G sports pitch and upgraded parking facilities.
