Kier is continuing work to build the new £25 million Ayr Academy in South Ayrshire. As part of the project, a series of behind the scenes visits have been taking place with pupils, elected members and senior council officials ahead of the school’s opening this August.
Construction on the new Academy got underway in January last year. Once complete, it will have space for up to 1,000 pupils, and will feature sports pitches, a multi-use hall, two gyms and a fitness/movement room. The scheme is part of a £94m pipe of works being delivered across the region over the next 18 months.
Cllr Margaret Toner said: “It was exciting to look around the building and see just how much progress has been made in the last few months. The new learning spaces will be inspirational and I have no doubt the young people and wider community will enjoy the new sports facilities.”
