Farrans/Martin/Patton JV wins £60m Scots islands schools job

A Farrans/H&J Martin/Patton joint venture has won a £60 million contract to design and build five schools in the Western Isles in Scotland.

The Northern Irish joint venture will build one secondary school, three primary schools and one combined school on the islands of Lewis, Harris and Benbecula.

The work will be carried out for Western Isles council’s special purpose vehicle Sgoiltean Ura.

A second lot - worth £44m - covering facilities management at the schools was won by Scottish firm FES.
