Knockroon Learning and Enterprise Campus

East Ayrshire Council have appointed Galliford Try t/a Morrison Construction preferred contractor status in respect of the construction of the Knockroon Learning and Enterprise Campus, Cumnock. 

The Knockroon Learning and Enterprise Campus aims to provide state of the art learning facilities for thousands of children and young people within the communities of Cumnock and Auchinleck; transforming education provision in the area for generations to come. The proposals include:

- A merged secondary school incorporating Auchinleck Academy and Cumnock Academy and Supported Learning Centre.
- A merged primary school, incorporating Greenmill Primary  School and Early Childhood Centre and Barshare Primary School, Supported Learning Centre and Early Childhood Centre.
- Hillside Additional Support Needs School.

The campus design will be sympathetic to the architecture of Cumnock and will also include excellent sports and recreation facilities accessible by the community. Parents, staff, children, young people and representatives from the wider local community have also been given a key role in helping develop the designs for the campus through a Design Team consultation programme with interested parties.

The new campus therefore aims to create a cutting-edge, cost effective and inspirational place for young learners and the local community alike. Given the importance of the new campus as a hub for the local community the design and quality of the building are seen as paramount, and as such it is felt not unreasonable to expect success to be recognised in terms of architectural and construction excellence.

Timescales are on-site start June 2017 (subject to planning consent) with project completion Summer 2019.
