The Project


The new £18m Prestwick North Education Campus has replaced Glenburn Primary and St Ninian’s Primary School. It will accommodate more than 800 pupils who will benefit from a wide range of spaces for teaching and learning, such as interactive play areas, an early years’ centre, outdoor classrooms, and first-class sports facilities.


The project has created an inclusive and welcoming environment for contemporary learning and teaching. It was delivered on budget and to the highest quality standards.



The Furniture Solution


Deanestor fitted out 125 rooms across the campus based around 42 room types. These were designed to create inspiring spaces where students can socialise, learn and flourish and include 22 classrooms, flexible learning zones, multi-purpose hall, sports hall, drama studio, and reception area.


The fitted furniture manufactured by Deanestor – primarily storage units, shelving, and worktops – were finished in maple as part of the biophilic design strategy which uses a mix of natural tones to reflect the local landscape.


Deanestor installed more than 1,200 items of loose and fitted furniture for this project, from storage space to white goods, tables, chairs, staging, dispensers, and whiteboards.


Following the success of this project, we have been awarded a second school campus fit out contract by Morgan Sindall Construction, to the value of £1.7m, working once again with South Ayrshire Council, hub South West, and BDP.


The Customer Perspective


Councillor Stephen Ferry, South Ayrshire Council’s Portfolio Holder for Education:


“We are committed to providing children and young people with the very best possible start in life. Prestwick Educational Campus will provide a modern and engaging environment for learning and will ensure pupils can thrive throughout their years at the school.”


Michael Ross, Chief Executive, hub South West Scotland:


“We are incredibly proud to have led the delivery of this project for South Ayrshire Council which was completed early and on budget. The Prestwick Campus was a real team effort and a huge well done goes out to all partners involved who have gone above and beyond, delivering the project to the highest quality standards.”



A Sustainable School Design


Sustainability was an important driver in the design of the campus, which runs on electric power. It has roof-mounted solar panels and air source heat pumps to provide heating. An allotment garden, willow garden and sensory garden give students and children from the surrounding community the opportunity to learn about nature.
