Mansfield-based furniture manufacturer Deanestor has won its largest education contract to date – a £5m project for BAM to manufacture bespoke furniture and fitout the two high schools on the Dunfermline Learning Campus.
The Deanestor team will supply and install more than 42,000 items of loose and fitted bespoke furniture for St Columba’s RC High School and Woodmill High School – that are relocating to Dunfermline Learning Campus in Fife.
Due to open by Summer 2024, the high school project is part of a wider learning campus development, which also sees the construction of the new Fife College. The schools project is being delivered by the Council’s partner, hub East Central Scotland.
Deanestor will manufacture a range of education furniture for the new high schools, including teaching walls, storage solutions, worktops, shelving, and kitchen units. Its team will fit out over 500 rooms across both schools and the shared facilities.
Designed by AHR, AECOM and Rybka, the 27,000sqm scheme is one of the UK’s largest Passivhaus education buildings. The architectural design is based on Passivhaus standards to improve internal comfort levels and reduce energy consumption and life cycle maintenance.
Ramsay McDonald, Managing Director for Deanestor in Scotland, said: “This is our largest school fitout contract to date and we are even more thrilled that it is local to our Scottish headquarters in Dunfermline. We are pleased to be playing our part in such a visionary and ambitious education scheme which will provide world class facilities for students, the local community, and businesses across the region.”
