SPIE UK has been awarded an £8 Million contract (by Kier Construction) for mechanical and electrical works at East Ayrshire Council’s new William Mcllvanney Campus in Kilmarnock.

This contract follows the completion of SPIE's £7 million multi-technical services contract at North Ayrshire Council’s 17,000sq.m Garnock Community Campus, along with some 40 other Scottish education wins over the past ten years.

SPIE UK’s range of works and responsibilities on site comprise mechanical and electrical works including the installation of Low Temperature Hot Water (LTHW), heating (including underfloor), domestic water services, syphonic drainage, data-voice, LV Switchgear, stand-by generator, lighting and power, combined heat and power unit, ventilation, fire sprinkler system, fire alarms and security systems.

The installation will also feature a daylight-linked PIR lighting control system, including absence detection in classrooms.

Named after the world-renowned author, who was born and educated in Kilmarnock, the £45.3 million, 18,360sq.m campus will accommodate approximately 1,465 secondary, 383 primary and 160 early years pupils between the ages of 2-18 and will be provided by East Ayrshire Council and Hub South West Scotland, through Scotland’s Schools for the Future programme.

The architects, NORR, have designed the new campus building to minimise overall energy consumption whilst adapting to a variety of interactive and collaborative teaching and learning needs.

Delivered by Kier Construction, the new campus will accommodate the merger of Kilmarnock Academy, James Hamilton Academy, New Farm Primary and Early Childhood Centre and Silverwood Primary.
