Kirn Primary, one of Argyll and Bute Council’s flagship school projects, was delivered in partnership with hub North Scotland Ltd. The school was built on the existing site, with the 1881 Victorian building retained and refurbished.

A high quality two-storey building has replaced the annexes of the old school, providing bright new classrooms, an atrium and library area, sports hall, main office and reception, general purpose room and separate dining hall.

Outside, the new school has large play areas, including a multi-use games area with synthetic surface, an improved pupil and bus drop-off area, and increased parking.

Morrison Construction Project Director Jeff Hedley, said: ‘‘It was wonderful to hear how the pupils and teachers have been enjoying the new and refurbished school facilities since they moved in during November last year.

hub North Scotland Chief Executive, Michael Padzinski, commented “We are delighted to have successfully completed this exciting new school in partnership with Argyll and Bute Council. The school is an integral part of the local community and now provides a modern teaching and learning environment by combining the new and existing buildings. The complexity of the project has been overcome through a strong collaborative approach by Argyll and Bute Council and the project delivery team.”
