Shetland School - Shetland Islands

Facing the unique logistical challenges of working in the Shetland Islands Sigmat designed, manufactured and installed a light gauge steel frame for a new three-storey, 100 bedroom residential block for Lerwick's new build Anderson High School. The residential block forms part of a £55.75m contract to build a new school for 1,180 pupils. 

The project was testimony to the cost effective advantages of working offsite by using a lightweight load bearing steel frame which was manufactured and assembled offsite prior to a road and 12 hour ferry transportation from Aberdeen to Lerwick.

The complete superstructure included a traditional hot-rolled steel ground-to-first-floor frame, incorporating an innovative external panellised wall system, erected in conjunction with the transfer structure. The upper two floors were light gauge steel. 

hub North Scotland are a driving force behind the planning, procurement and delivery of community-based infrastructure projects across the north of Scotland. The organisation led the project after being appointed by Shetland Islands Council as development partner.

100 bedrooms residential block, 18% more structurally efficient lightweight steel frame, £55m contract value, 1,180 school student places
