Keys handed over for steel-framed Borders school
Scottish Borders Council has taken possession of the newly-completed Jedburgh Grammar Campus following handover by its development partner hub South East and main contractor BAM Construction.
Designed by Stallan Brand, the new Jedburgh Grammar Campus is an innovative learning space, which will serve pupils aged from two up to 18, as well as providing further education opportunities and community facilities.
It replaces all three schools in the town and will have provision for nursery, primary, secondary and additional support needs pupils.
Community facilities include a multi-use games area, 2G hockey pitch, 3G sports pitch, 100m synthetic running track, 300m grass track and gym.
Alongside classrooms, there will be a rural skills area, flexible hall space that can be used for multiple activities such as community events, sport, dance or drama classes and a café.
The public library and contact centre will also be housed in the campus.
Martin Cooper, Construction Director, BAM Construction, said: “It’s a great achievement for everyone involved. Our site team have faced a few unexpected hurdles along the way, but throughout the project we’ve had the full support of both hub South East and Scottish Borders Council, so this really has felt like a partnership in the true sense of the word. We are delighted to leave Jedburgh with such a positive legacy.”
