The Project


The project represented a £28m investment by Aberdeen City Council to provide a new primary school and a range of amenities for the local community including a café, library, performance facilities and housing office.


The school accommodates up to 434 pupils and a further 100 children in an early years centre. It has created an inspirational learning environment for local children and invaluable community facilities.


The Furniture Solution


The fitout contract for Greyhope School followed the successful completion of Countesswells Primary School which was delivered for the same project team.


The latest project involved the provision of around 6,000 items of loose and fitted furniture for 117 rooms.


The fixed furniture was finished in graphite grey and white, and loose items were supplied in a palette of bright colours – lime green, yellow, powder blue, parrot green and tangerine.


Items manufactured by Deanestor included a trophy cabinet, tilt-top tables, worktops, desks, storage solutions, lockers, and teaching walls.



The Customer Perspective

Spokesperson for Aberdeen City Council Client Team:

“Deanestor was very easy to work with and on the Countesswells Primary project they went the extra mile to achieve client results in creating excellent collaborative, interesting and functional spaces for the school and the community – and in particular, the school classrooms, community library/cafe and the community general office space.  We were delighted to work with the Deanestor team once again on the Greyhope project, which has been just as successful.”
