Leisure facilities will include a multi use games area, fully equipped fitness suite and gymnasium and two all weather pitches. The ASN School will have a play area and its own smaller MUGA.
Graham contracts director Gary Holmes said: “This is a tremendously important project for Graham and we are looking forward to starting work on the new shared campus at Port Glasgow.
“We have experience of delivering first-class educational facilities across Scotland and this new project for Inverclyde Council is another which will enhance portfolio of schools projects further.”
The contractor is currently working on the £25 million Coltness High School in Lanarkshire and the £11.9 million Aviemore community school in the Highlandsand is also building the new £10 million Beacon Theatre for Greenock Arts Guild.
The project has been managed by the School Estate Team and designed by a multi disciplinary team led by Ingenium Archial as architects and lead consultant assisted by Buro Happold Mechanical & Electrical Engineers, Watermans, Civil & Structural Engineers, Turner & Townsend and TGP Landscape Architects,
