490 Internal Door-sets and Internal Screens

The £36m new-build, Ellon Academy is one of the largest schools built by Aberdeenshire Council as part of the Scottish Government's Scotland’s Schools for the Future building programme.

The integrated new facility included classrooms, learning zones, theatre, sports and leisure facilities and Hall and Tawse provided on time deliveries to meet contractor Farran Construction’s programme of works. We worked closely with Farran and the design team to ensure all requirements throughout this complex build were met. We provided 410 top quality craftsmen-created internal door sets and 80 internal screens – including screens with a two-hour fire-rating.

A dedicated Hall and Tawse project manager worked as sole liaison point with partners Farran Construction to ensure maximum efficiency for all parties. Excellent communication through this single point of contact meant that Hall and Tawse could enable changes to requirements while still meeting all programme deadlines.

Colm Doyle, Project Manager at Farrans on the Ellon Academy project, commented:

"The Hall and Tawse team delivered a seamless approach on the Ellon Academy project, demonstrating the same collaborative approach which has long been engrained into how we do things at Farrans."

"The Farrans team worked with a nominated project manager on a daily basis, ensuring there was communicative liaison between the plans, the project site, the manufacturing facility and the workshop team at all times."

"As a well-established contractor within the education sector, Farrans was pleased with the high-quality materials and professional approach demonstrated by the Hall and Tawse team -ultimately helping us to meet all Client expectations on quality."

"Farrans is delighted to have extended our working relationship with Hall and Tawse, with collaboration on new projects including the new-build Hillside Primary at Portlethen."
