Re-mobilisation of Inverurie Community Campus begins

As schools begin to look forward to the next session, many families in Inverurie and the surrounding area will be wondering whether they will be able to enjoy the start of term in the new Inverurie Community Campus.

While there are no guarantees given the ongoing restrictions, partners in this extensive project are pleased to report on-site planning and preparation for the recommencement of building works is now underway. The Aberdeenshire Council project is being delivered through developers’ hub North Scotland and built by Robertson who are now working to install new safety systems and arrangements. This preparatory work will continue next week in anticipation of a recommencement of construction activities when it is deemed safe to do so by the Scottish Government. All works will be carried out in line with physical distancing guidelines and Robertson is working to an agreed set of safe operating procedures.
 
Although it is too early in the re-mobilisation process to be able to forecast a completion date, this is an important first step towards achieving the much-anticipated completion of the new campus accommodation. If this falls beyond the start of the new term, contingency plans are in place to enable pupils to continue their education from August. St Andrew’s School will continue to operate from their existing building to enable a greater focus on transition experiences for its young people and will move into the new facility from the October break.

Partners will continue to keep stakeholders updated as dates are finalised.
